    USB to IDE cabel adapters

    WinXP and Win2k usually have built-in drivers. Win98 will need drivers, they should be included on the CD that came with the adapter.

    viewsonic pf790 problem

    I'm not so sure your monitor is bad. Viewsonics are very good and your model is even better. Maybe you're just unlucky and it was time for it to go. Don't turn it off, let the computer "turn it off". I've got a 19" MAG and it does the same kind of clicking. I never turn it off, when the computer shuts down, the monitor "goes to sleep".

    viewsonic pf790 problem

    You've got a 3 year warranty. Clicking is normal. Don't turn off monitor. When you turn off computer, monitor will enter PowerSaver mode. http://www.viewsonic.com/support/desktopdi...roseries/pf790/

    Win 2k3 Workstation conversion questions

    What you want to know is here: http://win2k3.MSFN.org/ All you applications will work, but many peripherals will not (mouse drivers, digital camera drivers, scanner drivers). Win2k3 was designed to be a Server, not a Workstation, but it can be tweaked to perform more like a workstation. I used an evaluation copy for several months. If you want to try out your copy, create a separate partition and configure for a multi-boot (I use Partition Magic/Boot Magic).
