David, I got to snooping around in there and found out that I have an
Intel TUSL2-C Motherboard.  When I looked it up online, I found taht it
will run 512 Mb of ram.  Not great, but better than I DID have at about
160Mb.  I remembered that I had some old memory laying around here so I
took a look see, and there were three 512 simms of PC 133 there.  I
stuck one in and now it's zipping right along.

Never did find what you refered to above, but I found some interesting
stuff....   Thanks...
