  6. USB to PS/2 adapter / converter that works?

    LOL- I know, was a joke. OK- thanks for the clarity. That's what I think too.
  7. actually, there is.... I use one for my SGI monitor. Monitor drivers are usually used for older monitors, newer monitors use the PnP Driver supplied by MS OS (depending on if 95/98/etc). WinXP will usually supply an adequate PnP driver (my SGI works fine with the PnP or the SGI-supplied driver). Older monitors needed drivers for color and resolution (you'll see .cat, .inf and .icm files). As for helping you, thedamned- sorry I can't be of much use here.
  8. USB to PS/2 adapter / converter that works?

    sounds like a USB-only KB.... may not work via PS/2 *I'm remembering the days of the serial/PS2 mouse, when the mouse had to be both serial AND PS/2 compatible in order to use the converter. I still have one of these mouses (meeses?) for when I work on older PC's. **Another thought- power via USB as opposed to power via PS/2= same? IOW, isn't the power for USB greater than what a PS/2 port will deliver? Can't remember off-hand. Just some thoughts. HTH

  12. Which kind of HDD?

    yes- but I recommend ATA133 at 7200 RPM (IDE) for speed. Slowest would be the ATA33, then 66, then 100. The faster the better (i.e. movies, CD/DVD burning, gaming, etc.) Use an 80-pin IDE cable as opposed to the older 40-pin (80-pin will work w/an ATA66/33 too). HTH
  13. Which kind of HDD?

    from your link: NVIDIA nForce2 MCP-T * 2 x UltraDMA 133/100/66/33 * Silicon Image Sil 3112A RAID Controller: * 2 x Serial ATA * RAID 0, RAID1 IOW- ATA133/100/66/33 (IDE) or SATA
