Okay... just a few more off topic questions (well, not about the old Alphas, which
is probably what this is going to be about) (1) Are old/new Motherboards
compatible (IE 300 Mhz now, 600 Mhz later) (2) Where on God's creation can I get
the parts???? (As for the OS, I'll probably take Linux, or NT, but I thought that
there was translation software for x86 written...)
