But then you have the problem of:  Is it really wise to sink more money
into a Pentium-MMX-class machine that's well over a decade old?  If that
works for you -- or you have compatible memory sitting around -- then
great.  But it's worth considering whether that money is not better
applied to buying a PIII (or better) on Craigslist.
