Without looking at numbers, I am pretty sure the slowest new SATA drive today would be faster then your old 20gb IDE drive.

FWIW, one small thing to keep in mind is your power costs of running multiple old machines continuously.

comment Enable/disable wireless interface in a bat file
@KronoS: Thanks for the reference. If it is an "answer" that needs to be part of the OP question, then go ahead and edit the question and add the "answer" portion to it, then flag the "answer" for deletion. For "answers" that need to become comments, go ahead and just flag those ones. We appreciate the help, but this way we can keep all content associated to the correct users.

@OldManRiver: That sounds like you have an additional question. I would search Super User to see if you can find something that answers question and if not, go ahead and ask a new question.

comment Can you bring LCD monitors from the Nothern Hemisphere to the Southern?
I remember the deguass button. I thought I screwed up my old crt monitor one day when I was younger and an audio speaker got too close to my monitor. That magic deguass button fixed it. There are tools also to re align monitors also that don't have the feature built in.

comment Windows XP updates on a fresh install
@Moab Yah, I am hoping OP returns to give us some more information. If he wants the more advanced solutions, I will just delete this answer because I am just mentioning the simple manual way of approaching this.

comment Windows XP updates on a fresh install
Updating the orginal image would be the best way to solve the current updates each machine needs. Can that be done? I posted the simple manual way and John T posted a centralized managed solution.

comment Are SSD's really reliable enough for power users?
This sounds like you just got some bad hardware. I think about half of the systems I have ever bought pre-built or built myself have had a part go bad. Your question is kind of vague. Maybe take a look at many of the SSD (click the tag) questions (or check out related question on the right) on Super User. There is a lot of great information and many other users that have brought up SSD read/write concerns.
