I have a Dell box set up with XP and Mint for the purpose of recovering data. Depending on the problem, I may use one or the other. I can boot the same machine with other specialized Linux recovery disks.

Congratulations for learning so much so quickly and for taking the time to reuse these old machines.

If there's one thing in my life that's missing; It's the time I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear waters; There's lots of those friendly people
Showin me ways to go; And I never want to lose your inspiration

Thanks for this discussion. I've learned a lot.

The worst decisions are usually made in times of anger and impatience.
