    I have been here before and already got some hints regarding and old Compaq
    Presario CDTV 528 (all in one piece model).
    I don't really want to sink more money than the price for a LAN card into
    it...
    Would it be possible to use the machine as a dedicated computer to run a
    P2P software like Emule or Kazaa? I can install Windows 98 but no higher
    version.
    There are 24MB of RAM. The HD needs to be exchanged since it is only approx.
    500MB (I have spare hard disks).
    Or shall I go back to the future and prepare a fast DOS machine dedicated
    to the first Space Invader game from 1980?

    Thanks,
    Murgi

    On the Hard drive, there is an 8GB drive size limitin BIOS. It even might be
    lower than that. I vote for the DOS route. I set up an old Micron Pentium
    133 for DOS and ran QuikMenu III, NeoPaint, Lync 3.0 Comm program and Doom
    and Duke Nukem 3D.
