Actually, I've got a P/75 box (with 32 Megs of RAM!) that I plan on powering up, just to see what is on the 2 Gig hard drive...

I have no idea what I'll do with the box itself, it has an Intel MB with serious cache issues (like, no off-chip cache, IIRC)... I may have even upped the CPU speed to 90 MHz, a brief flirtation with overclocking!

It is AT/ISA-based, it was my main machine when I had an ISDN connection (used an interna Motorola ISDN adapter/modem)...
