I be a Linux user

Last week Wendell decided to fix the computer. He fixed it so well that it no longer is able to run Windows 98 due to the deletion of an important file. We don't have the Win98 setup discs.

Martin hooked me up with a new version of Linux so I installed it and I actually figured out how to get it to access the internet. I talked to Time/Warner Roadrunner customer service and they told me I had to find out which ethernet card this computer has. I had to open up the box and take a look at the card and then go back to internet set up in Linux. I done did and it done now works. I hadn't planned on having to use my brain on a Sunday afternoon and I hope I never have to again.
