though i am young i have always had a facination with computers. i find it fun to tweak and use older computers. right now i own 3 286 systems and enjoy useing some of the older programs and DOS. I had a 486 that was totaly sweet, except the hard drive needs replaced. a friend and I modified the crap out of it

specs to enhanced 486:
stock stuff
AMD 486 120Mhz
Soundblaster AWE64
64MB 25Ns SIMMS
SIS 486 mainboard(unkown type with AMA BIOS)
VESA 8MB SVGA/VESA card
BUSlogic SCSI host card(PCI)
2 voodoo2 PCI cards.

enhanced or tweaked specs
overclocked to 200Mhz
main board was tweaked to allow twice bus speed
system clock is replaced, Bios replaced with hacked BIOS(AMA)
larger powersupply.
Various programs and such for preformance.

it ran in DOS, my friend did all the hardware tweaks. it ran many games that needed a pentium 200 very well. games that would only see 2 FPS with a normal 486 100 would run at a great 40 FPS on average. programs executed far faster. games like tombraider, tombraider II(in win95) ran extreamly good. quake2 had some slowdowns.

what hacks, tweakws and such have u guys done to older systems
