PC Mechanic's Build Your Own PC http://www.pcmech.com/byopc/index.htm
While decidedly Windows-oriented when it comes to choice of OS, this site is very thorough and organized in its discussion of PC building. You're taken through all the steps, from purchasing the components, through preparation of the case, motherboard configuration, installation of the CPU and accoutrements, connecting everything, configuring the BIOS, and testing the system. Just stop when it gets to the part about installing Windows, of course. This guide is written in friendly, easy-to-follow language, and uses the word "crap" often enough to make me think the writer is a regular guy.

Build a Computer - A step-by-step guide to assembling a computer

The Techzone's Build Your Own Comp: A Step by Step Guide http://www.thetechzone.com/articles/build_it_yourself/index.htm
This is a very nicely-done tutorial, complete with pictures and humor (like the page for "tools needed" that features a photo of a screwdriver and a Coke). In this example, the author teaches you to build a specific type of computer, but you can mix and match your own components anyway. Again, we're asked to install a Windows OS ... and again, we can ignore that part.

SysOpt's How To Build Your Own PC http://sysopt.earthweb.com/buildpc/
Here's another thorough look at what it takes to complete a PC building project. There's good advice and ample explanation and some useful photos, plus the authors remind us not to automatically choose Windows (but then they go ahead and explain how to install the Windows 98 operating system, go figure). The tutorial is almost two years old, but still up-to-date enough to be relevant in 2001.
