Hey I'm back after a good while ;)

I have some questions that maybe some of you can help out with.

I just now acquired a brand new compaq armada 1700 from a good friend of mine. He said he's only used it twice and never laid eyes on it again after he got a dell desktop....

I need to know if this laptop will take anywhere from 300mhz to 700mhz with speed step 3 enabled on the mobo ? I heard some idiot on another forum pushed his armada 1700 to 750mhz without killling it... is that possible even though I have a p2 233 running at 100fsb ?

Also I will put in a 40gig HDD in this laptop as well as increasing the ram to 160mb... The reason why I am doing this because I will be leaving behing windows 98SE and moving on to windows 2000 also I will be taking this labtop on small trips or for business usage and maybe play some games on it.

I need to know if this will be possible at all.

1.Week 1 CPU upgrade.
2.HDD upgrade
3.week 3 final memory upgrade.

will I need a bios update to do the required upgrading tasks ?
