A week or so ago, the HD on the machine finally took a dump. From everything I have read, this one lasted a heckofalot longer than most. I found a used, but guaranteed, 20 gig drive for $29 and decided to take a chance and give it a try. I installed the drive yesterday, the machineís set-up recognizes it, but that is as far as I can go.. so thatís where it sits.

If anyone out there has the knowledge to help me get this machine going again, Iíd certainly appreciate it.

Please PM me if you think you can help.

Ubuntu will probably do everything you need and more.
