Please PM your address to me, and I will get them in the mail soon (still need to get the XP system ready, and I want to B/U some of the stuff I have on the Zenith.) I was thinking of sending one of my ThinkPads (400, or 410.) I put Windows 7 on them, but they all came with XP. Would that work for you?
Ok, I can do that. I will try and get the printer picked up for you ASAP, it's just hard right at this moment, due to the probate thing, but I will get it taken care of, also if you'd pm me back with your shipping I will have one shipped straight to you, as soon as funds allow, but I will put money back to start putting it together. I am getting ready to make payment no 2 of 4, so it's not like a real extended thing. I understand that, always a good idea to clear a device off. I can make Win 7 work for me, its just not fully compatible with somethings on occasion. Thanks!

Ok, I should be able to figure it out. I got some games that are higher speeds, but the other I can make work, I just want my Johnny Castaway screensaver! lol

Thanks. No, its not easy.
Granz wrote:Also, regarding the Zenith; there are a couple of idiosyncrasies about it: 1) since the CMOS battery (IIRC it is just a 2032 coin cell underneath the keyboard, but check that out to be certain) is dead, you need to go into the setup after unplugging it. You don't need to make any changes, just go in and then exit with saving. and 2) When you push the power button, just push it, not hold it in - this lets it do a proper shutdown (not sure why, since it is running MS-DOS) and then it displays a screen saying to press enter to complete the shutdown.
I should be able to replace the battery, even if soldering involved. Ok, thanks for the information.
