Hi All.

I've been away from hardware just long enough so some of these things
have passed me by.  Anyway, I'm wanting to throw together a system
this winter, but am a bit unsure of the practical difference between
the Celeron and Pentium II processors, except for about $100.  I
assume both are 32 bit chips and both support the same amount of RAM
on board, etc.  Is there a major performance issue?  So any particulars 
would be appreciated.

On a related note.  I'm looking at main boards without such things
as integrated video and audio considering such features would be
less supported in the kernel and X (ie propretary/Win only interfaces).
Also, I'm looking at models that include an AGP slot, which I assume 
is the current rage for video adapters much like VESA Local Bus was 
5 or 6 years ago.

Any thoughts/experiences on this stuff would be appreciated as well.
