    My dear friend,

    1 computer requires 1 processor (could have thousands)

    You cannot run two computers off one processor................by definition it is one computer because it is the processor that "computes"

    I can have many hard drives, sound cards, video cards, CD/DVD drives et cetera in the same box, but it is only one computer.

    As I said, a computer (singular) can have multiple processors...............

    I must go and look in my loft.............I have an Apple which has a Pentium 120MHz and a Motorola (95Mhz?) and will run MAC and Windows off the same box

    What are you trying to achieve?

    hi bisht,

    well if ou want to have two computers in sense that you can have two screens and two Keyboard n so on so that two different users can work on simple things differently on both of them, like surfing net while other work on a word file , then there is one such hardware availabe from this company called jetway and here is the link
    http://www.jetway.com.tw/evisn/produ.../miniq2faQ.htm

    and also here i found this card that can be installed in your existing pc available on ebay and her eis link for that

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...sPageName=WDVW

    but these are for simple uses only as it depends a lot on configuration of your PC , how much load it can handle

    I think this is what you are looking for.
    i just looked you are from india , then you can surely get digit magazine, on its last pages you can find advertisement about a similar product, i don't remember it now but i read it 4 months back. if you cant find it, tell me i will look into old editions.
    It\'s all about sense of power.

    Significant cost reduction ..... lol

    By no means, you can't share one processor with two different boxes ..... AFAIK

    This could be potential idea for future inventions ... you never know ...

    Ehrrm not really sure what you mean but I think these come pretty close:
    Microsoft Virtual PC
    VMWare Workstation 5

    It's possible to run these on a P3, done it in the past. As long as you've got enough memory it'll run. Not fast but it'll run..
