AMD Duron 1300
512 Mb DDR 333
Geforce 4 MX440
Xwave7000
Maxtor 80 Gb+40 Gb (7200 rpm)
Creative 5.1 bulk

Philips 16 x CD-RW
12xMAX DVD rom

Logitech Opti-mouse

17'' Nokia monitor

Yup...There is lot need of update, especially on graphic side. But money don't grow in trees so I have to get what I can afford with my salary. I got decent motherboard so I can update this (someday) over 2 Ghz...

Very nice guys! Wow, a 2.7 Ghz is an entire Ghz + more than mine!
Not completely. I am overclocking my 2.3GHz CPU. But the Intels are perfect for overclocking. It only adds another 10 degrees celcius to the temperature. In the past summer, my max temp would be 47C. Try that with an Athlon. :P

A friend told me about his friend's quad overclocked 386.. the scary thing is that due to the paralel processing he was able to run it faster than my 1.6 gigahertz computer.

Kinda like the Baelwulf clusters that I'd like to put together sometime.

(For those that don't know.  A baelwulf cluster is a bunch of old obsolete PCs running in paralel to make a supercomputer.)

I too have a crappy computer, relative to today's standards.

PCChips 599LMR motherboard (onboard video, sound, modem, ethernet)
AMD K6-2, 300 MHz
60 MB RAM
6 GB Windows 95 partition.
6 GB Linux partition. (useless: I forgot the root password...)
100 MB hard drive in removable bay. (for swapping MP3s)
24x4x2 CD-ROM burner (makes coasters -- and CDs)
14 inch viewable monitor.

Still, it works for me. Main problem I have is it ocassionally slows down, i.e. when several programs are open...

Try standard log on root with no password... It's the standard root logon for all Linux versions.

My computer is decent.  The graphics card needs replacing, but otherwise it's a solid mid-range PC (As far as gaming goes)

A friend told me about his friend's quad overclocked 386.. the scary thing is that due to the paralel processing he was able to run it faster than my 1.6 gigahertz computer.

Haven't tried myself, from what I have herd/ Why don't you try to download a floppy version of linux, say coherent Linux, boot up into it. Mount the hard drive. Then change what you need to change. Restart and use the password you have changed

Thanks for the help, guys, but I'm really not that interested in it right now. I like the idea of Linux, but don't see myself trying to set it up/figure out all the stuff to learn how to use it properly right now. My brother was the one who helped me install it, if I want I can get him to help me re-install it at a later time.

I guess the purpose of the original post was I just wanted to show my computer has a secret identity...

It was a gift from my sister when I turned 17 actually, and It's kind of stuck with me since. (age 22, in a week or so)
