Use it as a server or a jubebox, like neodude said.

I honestly have a Pentium 200MHZ with a Mach 64, a Sounblaser 16 and 64MB PC-100 and it ran XP Lite fine. Low memory, but I was able to browse the internet! In a garage sale, I will sell it for $10...as I had to replace the stuff in it for a Celeron 366...

you could take out the parts from it and put them in soimething weird, like an old stereo or a box or something. like what they do at www.mini-itx.com. ive done that with old computers, and its pretty fun.

I dont mean to sound cheap but keep it may be when you get about 76 or older you probably wanna sell this old piece of junk as a Antique may be some rich collector will buy it off of you or you can sell it to a museum, making $$ is a preety nice idea dont you think.... i mean ofcourse the computers will be newer by then you can show ur Grandkids that once you used to have this kind of technology and they should bow down for ur patience becuase they use unlimited Gb and MB of computers then... keep it may be it'll come handy in the future
