  1. Well, as an effort to save power, and because i was bored i put 2 computers on one PSU. These computers run 24/7 running F@H, the distributed computing project. One PC is a 400Mhz Celeron and the other is a 400Mhz PII. they both run Suse 9.1. It's not pretty, but you probably haven' seen anything like it before :D :p

    hehe, it's ugly, but it works, both computers have been at load for a few weeks, and nothing has melted yet :grinthumb

    All that's missing is a KVM switch.

    I would say you should put a card rack on the back. You don't always get great connections to the mobo without it.

    provided the PSU can handle both, you shouldn't have any problems.

    Do you see any speed differences between the Celeron an PII? I just wonder if I should buy a 7$ 400MHz PII to replace my Celeron 400MHz or not...
