Such low end machines can have some useful purposes. If you have a
network, you can run something like arpwatch. It is a simple monitoring
application that will let you know when new computers plug into your
network. Laptops make great monitoring stations.
You could also try using it as an X display. Run XDMCP on a more
powerful system, and then set up the laptop to use XDMCP to become a
graphical dumb terminal.

thanks for the info. We'll see how this will go. I'll have to do a
network install too. There's no CDROM. Anyone know of any good uses for
such a crappy laptop? I figured I could at least ssh from my living
room (no wireless, but I can pull a run easily) to my main box.
