Solving social problems with techinical matters never worked!
Educate your children, give them "media competence", surf together with them,
but don't restrict them as dummies!
But ok, that's "your" children...

If you have lot of memory you would not notice it while surfing.

XP would use "SMP" with upto 2 CPU(core)s.
Have a look in taskmanager: You should see both cores there.
If not, you run the wrong kernel. Test MS-KB for more info.
You can inhibit that in boot.ini, see MS-KB.
>Would it be possible to make CoLinux use the other core?
>Thanks for your thoughts.
Have a look on "IPcop".
It should work under colinux too and there was "once" (1 year or
more ago) in heise c't an article howto to integrate IPcop into a
VM in Windows.
I am quite sure that would be the easiest way to avoid reinventing
the wheel ;-)
