This is my first post to the list, although I came to a LUGOD meeting last 
November and met some folks at the WEF table.

Anyway, a friend dropped by unannounced a couple days ago with his old 
computer. It's an HP Pavilion c355 (333 mhz Celeron, 64MB RAM, 4G HD). I 
had to replace the CD drive, at which time I blew the dust out of the 
case innards. I ditched Window$ 98 and installed VectorLinux 5.1 (based 
on Slackware, good for older/low resource machines). There is also an HP 
DeskJet 697C Serial Printer (but no power supply so I dunno if it works). 
I can include keyboard/mouse from an old Dell.

It's been running stably and the fan is pretty quiet. No network card, 
unknown soundcard, winmodem, not sure about video card model. It has a 
few PCI slots and two USB ports. Would work fine for thin client, 
kid/granny computer, charity, fileserver, etc.

I'm trying to get it out of the house ASAP. I wouldn't mind a few (just a 
few) bucks to cover the parts I put into it (CD drive, cables) but I can 
also give it away. Please email if interested.
