Socket 7 AMD K6-2



WD Caviar 21000, with a whopping 1GB of storage!

I have the rest of the computer, and i am about to go pull it apart. Will be posting more photos soon.

Any idea what i should do with these components?

Not sure whether to pull everything right apart or disassemble and reassemble the computer (I ave never made a computer and i am planning to build my first in the new year, so this will be some practice for me!)

Clean it up, reassemble, put Linux on it, make it a web browsing machine!

Look on the mobo manufacturers website for a pdf of the manual there should be a pin schematic there to show you what to plug in to start it up.

I have pulled them all out! I know that i can start it up by touching the on ones together but am not sure which two they are.. Dont matter now as i have finished with that computer and i am building myself a budget P4 pc that has hyperthreading for under $100NZD
