    All should be ok, Im not 100% sure of the memory if its in the list of
    supported memory though. As long as it is there should be no problems with
    that list

    The table at the bottom of this page might help, but a lot of the
    entries are for Winbond BH-5 chips, and CH-5 are more likely to
    be on modules now. I thought I read on one of the private forums,
    that Winbond was trying to make BH-5s again due to the demand,
    but that isn't the way that silicon manufacturing works - when
    a code goes obsolete, they'll just keep tweaking the CH-5s until
    they get them right (keeps people busy :)

    There could be another list of modules on the Asus site, but without
    a search engine, who knows where it might be...

    The Asus memory compatibility pages seem a bit outdated. I've read quite a
    few newsgroups with people using memory that is not on the list. More than
    likely it should work. Unfortunately...you never really know until you try
    it. Suggestion: Why not a DVD+/-RW for an additional $50...They can be had
    everywhere lately.

    Can you tell me how to go about installing my winxp once this is all
    put together since I'll have no OS installed? Do I need a boot floppy
    or can I boot from the xp cd and install the winxp that way?

    thanks.

    XP has all that you need, just set the CD rom as a bootable device in the
    bios

  10. If you plan on using a SATA drive as your boot drive, you will need XP w/SP1
    slipstreamed or
    microsoft orig)
