newbie Questions



Well I installed the upgrade on a clean drive. Everything seems great but here are a few ??

First off my system is an intel p3 800 with 512 meg ram SB live value Asus geforce 256 32 meg video.

The system does not seem to run as fast as I expected.

Also with ME when I booted up I was automatically connected to the net. I am on Sympatico DSL. With XP I have to connect manually. How can I change this?
I set it to connect automaticaly but it doesn't.

Are there any tweaks to speed the system up ?

^^^^Hey! the Ghost in the machine snuck up on me :D ^^^^

I'm not sure what you mean by having to connect manually. What exactly is happening? It should be always connected with the DSL.

Not as fast as you would like. Is your speed comparable to the ME installation? There are a ton of tweaks available here, but if performance is comparable to other OSes you've tried on that machine you may not achieve desired results. Not exactly sure what to suggest on that

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
