can buy a cheap box and move the motherboard over and put my older
hard drive that was for my backups in there and stick Linux on it.

can just swap them out. I'll take a look this weekend and see, right
now I'm just happy to have email and all my files back. I need to get
an extension for the power connections from the power supply, so I can
plug in both the CD-Rom and the CD-RW, then I need to find the drivers
for the CD-RW but I should be able to get that off the web and then I
can do backups to CDs which is better anyway.
Plus I think I'll see if I can pick up a cheap hard drive, my current
primary drive with all my stuff on it is almost five years old.

- All ISPs have a 'whitelist' and whatever they agree to put on it is allowed
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.
