Is your hardware compatible with Win2k?  I am running it with no problems.
I find Win2k to be pretty stable/usable for a MS OS.>>

I did too before I tried ADSL or any upgrade of the OS. Anyway, it should
be compatible as it's all standard components which are neither too old nor
too new - the fact that SuSe recognizes all of it automatically except for
my graphics tablet (which does work btw) and MS joystick should say
enough....

<<> So, now I'm running the ugly but at least working windows 98 again.....

yuck.  98 sucks>>

I only have to look at it for e-mail. Other than that, I run cygwin...
anyhow, my ISP/employer is thinking about putting one of their backup
servers
in my house (you know, website backup in case of fire)...which should also
leave me with a 100baseT-like permanent connection for my home PC. Only
catch here is that I'll be forced to run Red Hat 6.2 on it...something I can
live with =)
Then again, it's probably never gonna happen ;/

cheers,

Leo
