    I'm impressed you got XP running on that K6. XP is really next generation and systems will really need to be built to accomodate it rather then vise-versa. My guess is that your issue has to deal with the "C" word - compatibility. If everything else is working ok, get a radio.

    I have the same problem on my Compaq Presario 7478 with the ESS Allegro sound drivers/chip. I have not found a fix for that yet, and it is REALLY annoying.

    I run WinXP with no noticible slowdown on a 533MHz K6/2, 256MB RAM Desktop and a 333MHz K6/2, 160MB RAM Laptop.

    On the Desktop, i have had no problems with drivers, and the comptuer as a whole (Compaq Presario 7478) is listed on Microsoft's HCL for WinXP. The laptop's (Compaq Presario 1260) internal 56K modem does not work because of driver/BIOS conflicts, but i just swiped a 56K PCMCIA modem from work and that one runs fine.
