No offense, but anything virtual pc is my sworn enemy. I'm into vintage machines...running an old o/s on a new machine is a travesty to my way of thinking. And it's gotta be full ATX for me
But I am going to take the tips above to heart...I'm going to up the ram and disable Java and see what happens. For right now I can only go as high as 384 mb without buying at least one 256 stick of ram (my mobo has 3 memory slots and all I have are 128 mb sticks).
If those things don't do the trick, I will be resigned to the fact that 400 MHz is indeed too slow, and I'll get something with at least a 1 GHz processor.
What do you guys think of Pentium III's? I know I can get one that's as fast as a lower end P4...
