Thank you very much gentlemen!
I appreciate it very much!
These old PCs are going out
of the university where I work
in clumps. In other words, a
bunch of them have already gone
into the dumpster and I didn’t
know about it. There is another
clump of them coming.
I have to intercept the clump and
get a machine out of it. I’ve
already been told it’s OK. I just
don’t know when the next clump is
coming. It should be soon.
A friend told me last night that you
can get a whole LINUX operating system
fit onto a little USB stick. (I tend
to call them “thumb drives.”)
Then you put the thumb drive into the
USB port of the PC. Even though the hard
drive is blank, the BIOS is still there,
and it will see the LINUX operating system.
This will enable the LINUX to run. He also
told me that most of the newer versions of
LINUX out there have MP3 players included.
So I’ll wait for the next clump and see what
happens. I also appreciate the other kinds
of suggestions you all gave. I may get around
to them, and it sure does expand my knowledge.
