I have had a really old laptop sitting in my cupboard for ages, and this weekend I decided I would try to resurrect it to a usable state. The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro 430CDS. It has 32MB RAM and a 1.3GB HDD. So yeah, its crap. It has no USB slots but it does have a CD-ROM.
After alot of messing about, I have managed to install a barebones copy of Windows XP which was designed to run on systems with a minimum of 17MB RAM. I have to say it is running surprisingly well!
Anyway, my next hurdle is trying to get the internet running on this old beast. I don't need wireless, since I don't have a router, so I just need an Ethernet port.
The detailed specs for the laptop are here:
Any ideas or suggestions appreciated
