Good luck. If you can find an old PowerLeap cheap, there's no reason it can't be bumped up to a K6-2 400/66 system and given a new lease on life. It was well worth the $30 I spent to get that old system capable of running something more than MS Office. The friend who has it now runs Quake II on it quite well, and it's acceptable for a lot of the multimedia content you get online. With the WinChip, it was hopeless. <p></p><i></i>
