I would like to upgrade my system to make it perform faster and give it more diskspace.  What steps should I take in order to do so?  I am currently using a CyrixInstead 32.0 MB Ram.  It is a 150MHZ system With MMX.

Currently your system is not too bad from it's description.  You did not specify your disk size which of course can speed up your system if you get a faster one.  The newer the hard drive the faster it will be in most cases.

Start off by getting a new hard drive and see how that feels.  If you still crave more speed then you might want to look at buying a new motherboard and CPU.  This might require you to get new memory though if your existing RAM is not supported by the new motherboard.

Pentium II boards usually only take 168 pin modules rather than the 72 pin SIMM's that you should have.  You can also just get some more RAM which will improve your performance however if you later upgrade your motherboard you may not be able to use any of the existing RAM.

Whatever you decide, drop me an email at zippo@tampabay.rr.com and I can get you a good deal on any hardware you want to buy.  I work for a hardware/software company and can get the stuff at very low prices.

Good luck...
