Pulled the old 60GB drive and the original 256MB RAM module out of my workstation to put in Rosey's machine instead of her current drive. Accidentally tried one of the 512MB modules and discovered that they don't work with the older motherboard in the PIII machine.
Eventually the PIII will be the mail and file server, so I'd been considering splitting the 2 512MB modules between it and Rosey's desktop... oh well, 320MB will have to do for the file-server (it won't be running KDE/X most likely anyway) and Rosey will get the whole 1GB from my machine (wonder if she'll notice). And in the meantime, 5x the RAM should help make the box a little speedier as a desktop.
