Probably no more than 32MB of RAM in there. That's museum quality stuff.

Holy crap, 8megs? Won't be able to do much but type and watch videos. Might be some big time lag though.

well there is lot's of stuff to do.
U could make the worst build that u can, and then mod the case so that it looks like it would be a brand new computer. U could just buy like 1 neon light and a 1m x 1m piece of that material they make the case windows of. (the clear plastic thingys) Then cut some figure, (what ever u want) on the original side panel and then attach the clear plastic thingy to the original side panel. Then just put the neon light inside the case.

I actually thought of doing this someday, it would look cool and would definitely feel good because u did it yourself. I thought of maybe spelling my name there.

I don't know if u fully understand what I mean since that explanation kinda sucks. But that's just one idea.

You can still use the Pentium II and have it folding 24/7. Or a small music/video/game server would be a good idea, since servers don't require much specs to host things.

A server is bascially a PC which loads of things can be accessed on. A P2 server would probably only be good for storing files or folding (search google for folding@home). What you need to do is simply make a PC. Then connect it up to a router or something. Then you can download software, I'll get you some names if you want, which can mean you can access the desktop from your other PC. If you wanted to host games, you'd need a better PC than that. A music server might work though.
