The Screen Savers Show notes for Monday, February 26,
2001

* RAM-o-RAMA!

Joel from Manchester, Pennsylvania has a new Abit BP7
motehrobard, which gives him the option of running RAM
at 66-, 100-, and 133 MHz. He has a 128 MB stick of
PC100 (100 MHz) RAM and a 128 MB stick of PC133 RAM,
which runs at 100 MHz. What speed should he run it at?

Depends on the native FSB (front side bus) speed your
processor requires. If it calls for a 100 MHz FSB, you
can run both sticks at 100 MHz. (The PC 133 should run
at a slower speed just fine...) If you run a chip
designed to run at 100 MHz at 133 MHz, you'll be
overclocking it, and running it at a higher speed than
it was designed for. (Just make sure it stays cool
enough!)
 
If your chip requires a 133 MHz FSB to run at its
standard speed, you should run the memory at 133 MHz. If
you're lucky, that 100 MHz stick will run fine at 133
MHz. If not, it might cause random system failures, or
just not boot at all. You could run both sticks at 100
MHz, but then your chip will run slower than it should!

Frankly, as cheap as RAM is, if the 100 MHz stick of
SDRAM won't run at 133 MHz, sell/give it away. Then buy
a replacement stick of PC133 memory. Even name brand
prices are incredibly low, and you don't want to
sacrifice that much performance. 

How much? An 1 GHz PIII, designed for a 133 MHz FSB,
would only run at at 750 MHz if you set the FSB to 100
MHz. We'd upgrade the slower stick of RAM if it wouldn't
run at 133 MHz!

* Send a browser packing...

Dennis from Midland, Michagan runs a website called
http://www.hockeyrefs.com. It has two versions; one
looks best in Netscape and the other best in Explorer.
How can he automatically direct viewers to the best
version for their browser?

JavaScript, bay-bee! The right scipt will automatically
redirect a given browser to the right page. The fine
folks at CoolNerds have closed down their site,but
here's a tutorial that shows you how detect and reroute
browsers:

Here's another how-to from the folks at DevHeads:

Here's a set of scripts for redirecting AOL and WebTV:

* Win2K stole my boot menu!!!

Javan cammed in from Ann Arbor, Michigan. He installed
Windows 2000, and now he needs to use a boot disk to get
Linux up and running. Comman problem from what we hear,
Javan. 

Leo says you should head to this site and download a
program called BootPart:

http://www.winimage.com/bootpart.htm

It will modify the boot.ini file to add Linux to the
boot menu. Here's are a couple more sites with ideas on
how to multiboot Win2K (or NT4) and Linux:
