In the mean time I put linux on it, which is what I am using at the moment to post this.
    sucks, which distro are you using?

    Fedora, I have sun, susi and red hat but I don't like them.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Last time I tried it it didn't have the drivers i needed to even load, I'm sure they have them now that's been two three years.
    This fedora actually is loading pretty smoothly, it has an automatic updater and is downloading almost 500 of them right now.

    this really is the best bet in my opinion

    Ubuntu is really great at automatically finding drivers and stuff

    if you can get the initial installation down then the rest is smooth sailing.

    i gave up on microsoft a long time ago and i don't have the money to buy Mac products

    ubuntu has been serving me VERY well and it's totally free and so much easier to use.

    haven't had a need for Linux in any capacity in 5ish years, Windows/MS hasn't given me any fits in years, do need to get RAM for my desktop though :-/

    Rock, hate to tell you this but when buying something off of Ebay it's caveat emptor. Microsoft has every right to tell you 'tough titty'. This is why I'm very, very leery of buying anything off of Ebay, especially software.

    I think the important fact that is being overlooked in this thread is that Rock has been neglecting his manicurist.
