i would not upgrade that old pc - not worth it
i would get some cheap parts and build a new pc for around 400
i think your not doing too much on your pc
so i would settle for a hp, dell, or compaq

for music www.winamp.com
you have to have windows xp, nt, or 2k to do this - right click the task bar (bar at bottom of screen), select task manager, now under options select hide when minimized

if you have 98, me, or 95 goto start, programs, acesseries, system tools, and then system monitor i think.
