Oh yeah, I forgot the rest of the story on the P133. I installed as a server, so it left about 1gb free. When I ran the client for the project, it wouldn't work as it requires 128mb ram.

The box has 64mb. *sigh*

I found 128mb of matched ram for that model computer on ebay for $15. :) IBM Aptiva 2176 - not new by any means. EDO ram though. Crucial wanted $50 per 32mb stick. I was SO happy to find it at a tiny fraction of that on ebay! It's worth $15 to upgrade the ram. It's not worth $100 to do it.
