    Question

    Not trying to sound stupid, but why were you looking for an "older" version of DirectX? Sounds interesting...

    Cool URL though!
    [shadow]There is no right and wrong, only fun and boring...
    Formatting my server because someone hacked into it sounds pretty boring to me...
    That\'s why it\'s all about AntiOnline.com!

    You think that's silly....top this! ;)

    Last night I reinstalled windows 3.1 on a pentium then upgraded that to win95 and got rid of the Mandrake 8.1 that I was running on that box. Crazy? Yes. But I have my reasons!

    By the way..here is a good link (though not set up well) for boot disks.

    Nothing wrong with a little old school experimentation..

    I've got an old 486 box with Windows 3.1 still up and running at my place.. Every now and then I just play around with that box just for kicks - I play a few games and stuff like that with it.... It was with that box that I really started learning about computing, so maybe I've got it around for sentimental value...

    I completely agree. Too, it is really nice to have a box that you couldn't care less about....one that isn't needed for things necessary. This old pentium allows me to be a little more daring than I would be with the machines I use for programming. Incidentally, I'm looking at installing some gnu utilities on the pentium, so that's why I was making all the changes.
