Default Old Rambus PC800 re-build

Went dumpster diving again haha!!. Someone threw away a perfectly good functioning Intel Motherboard i850 chipset W/ P4 2.0 Ghz Northwood CPU. So threw it in an old beige case I had lying around just for sentimental reasons
what really caught my attention was the fact that it had Rambus memory in it, back in the day when pc133 memory was expensive this memory was usually about 3 to 4 X more expensive than the common pc133 ram. Researched a little bit about Rambus and realized that each memory module has it's own memory controller for ea stick of Ram.
Rambus has had a difficult time protecting its Intellectual Property and the big memory manufacturers did manage to steal some of their ideas which rambus was able to prove in court. Hence now we have DDR, DDR2, DDR3 which contain Rambus ideas.

I put Windows XP x86 on this one. Installing XP has become a real pain now Microsoft wants to make it as difficult as possible now to do a fresh install and updating from their servers. Now there seems to be an auto-update bug with SP3 which bogs down svchost.exe maxing out @ 100% until you manage to download the security fix then will work fine after the one update.
