I know it aint old or anything, but it is still a nice machine.
Today, I was driving home, and found a Dell Poweredge dual P2 333MHz server with 2x 10GB scsi HDDs, and 256MB RAM. To my amazement it worked.....But it didn't have an optical, so I popped a PCI ata card and CD-RW in there, loaded windows 2000, and it works very nicely. Just thought i'd share my good news today.

duelies are like that. My Digital Priorus DP Server only has a pair of P-133s but it runs Windows 2000 quite smoothly.

I've been trying to sell a Dell Poweredge for a while. Seems people need it to be faster. I want the midget casket sized thing outta my room, but I will not throw out a working computer. never.

I have found that setting a computer out to the curb is sometimes the best way to insure it finds a good home. Stuff that I can't give away is *always* disappeared long before the junkman gets to it.
