Well, I’m doin' somethin' I swore I’d ne'er do again. Installin' WinME, we'll keel-haul ye, pass the grog! I can’t get Windows 2000 t' install due t' some “hardware failure” as th' installer stated. Ahoy! And swab the deck! So, I’m installin' Me with hopes o' bein' able t' upgrade t' Win2k. I just wonder if I could avoid this problem if I had that BIOS upgrade. I should have th' battery in a few days and then I can find out I suppose. This just seems like too much work. I’m actually on th' edge o' installin' XP and disablin' all th' pretty bells and whistles. Walk the plank! By th' time ye add up th' space taken by WinME + Win2k, it probably won’t be much different. I just don’t want t' devote half o' me 6GB hard disk t' Windows at all. Maybe I just need t' try another Linux distro first before I do somethin' stupid. If ANYONE readin' has done Linux on a Thinkpad 600E recently with PCMCIA Ethernet and Wireless cards, let me know OK, and a bucket o' chum? I could use a bit o' help.

Oh, and I just realized I have t' come up with a name fer this puppy. Yaaarrrrr, and a bottle of rum! Currently on th' home network we have “xmainframe” (slightly modified from th' name Zion Mainframe when I ran Windows on it) which is me box and “trinity” which is Bonnie’s little computer upstairs, and a bucket o' chum. So, stickin' with The Matrix theme, any suggestions fer a good name fer th' laptop? Walk the plank! I’m kinda leanin' towards Tank just t' be funny. Merovingian? Mouse? Ahoy! Oracle? Seraph? Let me know…
