I'll reformat it and install Linux on it. I don't have any intention
of trashing it as long as it works and Linux is much more efficient
with ram and processor speed and hard drive space than Windows so it
should run well on this older PC.
Even my old PC that's not working right now isn't getting thrown out,
I'll scavenge parts from it for other PCs and I may even get to
pulling out that switch and see if that's the problem with it. If it
is, I'll see if I can replace it and stick a hard drive and network
card back in it and then I can use that for another Linux PC or
perhaps install Win2k on it.

access through their servers. A number of people in a forum that I write to
are AOL members and my mail was originally classified as spam until their
addresses, at my request, were added to the AOL whitelist. It's a pain I
know but a way to circumvent the system.
