  1. Does anybody know where I might be able to pick up a few pentiumIII/late PeniumII machines at a knockdown price?

    Nah, prolly not. If you did you'd buy em yourselves I supose, but still, ideas on where to look would be nice. I fancy an experiment in building a SETI crunching cluster out of old machines. Purely to see what I can get out of them, ant to see if the whole really is larger than the sum of it's parts :)

    google is your friend. Lots of people online sell old parts at a premium ofcourse ;)
    Best place to find old machines is garage sales and Goodwill type stores. I am always seeing PII and earlier machines at garage sales for next to nothing.

    There are some shops here that do some quite good deals. For example, a p3 ( CuMine ) 600 for 145€ , which includes 128mb of PC133 Ram, a 12GB HDD, CDRom, keyboard/mouse & a 15" screen. It's nothing fancy but you can't beat that price.

    It's better to look at local shops that way you don't have to pay for shipping or anything.

    *Edit* Soul doesn't have anything left for sale.
