Does anyone know wether MAMEwah, and a bunch of emulators (snes, mega drive/genisis, mame, neo geo & gba) would work ok on TinyXP?

Barry

I just finished my new juke setup and it is running on TinyXP (used Bart PE to strip down XP). I stripped everything out and loaded the system, then loaded the motherboard video audio and lan drivers. I also did some XP Embedded hacks and then after setting everything up I dumped it all on a 4Gb flash drive (Plugs directly into IDE header), I access my library from a mapped drive so there is no hard drive in the system. You might remember some posts on "Speed Booting" from some time back, Well this thing will boot in about 10 seconds and start playing, plus when my kids and their friends start dicking with it they can't do any harm because nothing is stored on disk. The bad thing is that every time I start it it is a complete new system with no history. The read speed on this flash drive is incredible but the write speed terrible, I made sure to get it all setup the way I wanted it on a hard drive first, then wrote it all to the flash.
The XP Embedded hacks setup a virtual disk in memory for write cache to avoid writing to the flash drive

If you or anyone else is interested let me know and I will link you up with info.

BTW ... system is running a 750Mhz Duron with 512Mb memory built in nvidia graphics.

LOL...That processor is older than the one I'm currently using! It's a Duron 1.3GHz CPU with 512MB Ram and cheapo vid card. I am planning to upgrade my main system soon though. Once I do this one may become a dedicated jukebox.  :)

Technically, yes you should have a separate license for each pc.

Then again Technically, I'm sure Microsoft doesnt want you using Tiny XP at all.

What do you guys think about a PIII 400? My old Dell is collecting dust and I thought I'd give it a try. If I can load Netcat's TinyXP image on there, hopefully it won't be too slow...
