Well thanks to Linux community and what I learned from it, the problem
was not only Windows but the ignorance I was carrying, and also a great
luck that the material was not perfect. (a luck, to push me on the way
For the material side of the problem, the BIOS needed to be updated, the
flat cables where those furnished with the mother board but where
rotten, something in the BIOS had to be changed (a sata port enabled
whereas the HDD is IDE).
For the soft side, I could see the spyware/firewall software starting a
scan suddenly, just while I was running a task, and I could'nt do
anything about it. It was lasting at least 30 minutes.
Then the system was bothering with the key activation, then with an
update to do, then, with a new virus that had to be checked out on the
website of the company that works with Asus and furnishes the
anti-virii/firewall in the box. Very good company, ok. What a lost of

Once a while I could see new files that I didn't create appearing in 'my

If I'd ever need an app under Windows, I'd put it behing a gateway
running under a *nix system, and even not too long so I would't have to
activate the key. I also have an OEM that I don't use anymore, I stare
at the CD once in a while ;)

Best greetings, Joyce Markoll.
PS: I had a XP Family, on a Asus 2800xp+ Motherboard with a Via KT600
chipset and the AMD proc goes 1667MHz.
