Build Your Own 386 PC (1991)

Quote:
In 1991, Stewart Cheifet hosted a segment of Computer Chronicles discussing how to build your own home PC. It's standard geek fare of the day, but watching it now brings back some long-suppressed memories. For instance, you needed an add-in card to host your floppy and hard drives (these days, that's all integrated into the motherboard). Oh, and there were faux 3.5" floppy faceplates, so it would look like you had more drives than you did (visible around 5:50 in the video below). Set the time-machine to negative 23 years and check out what all the cool kids were doing back then.

Back to the days where cases came with PSU already installed, nothing was built-in to the motherboard, system RAM & hard drive space was measured in MBs and DOS was the dominate OS.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

That was interesting. When did they do away with the FCC required sticker that was referred to? This was the first I had heard of it.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?
Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
