Not worth bothering with IMO...you can get computers with 4-8 times the CPU speed and 4-8 times the RAM of that system for virtually nothing.

Not really true. But the mid 90s virtually everything would boot from CD.
Its the eariler systems, like 286s/386s/some486s, and systems with CD roms controlled by sound cards, etc. that are more likely to need drivers to get the CD working.

Really? Unless you've got a time traveling Pentium II, its not a 1996....Pentium II didnt get relased until may 1997.
