I have a lot of unfinished work on that computer. I have a lot of unposted work on that computer. So does my husband.
He should be buying a new one today, because the idea of spending more time without a computer than necessary scares both of us, and we were going to get a new one anyway. It's just now we have to figure out how to transfer those files over. Original plan was to buy cd-rw drive, install in old box, d/l files, transfer cd/rw to new box and u/l. Now, we'd have to do that with the new monitor, and if it's the video card, we're sunk.
My current thought is to install old harddrive in new machine, transfer files from that and then reformat it to use as a Linux drive. Does that sound feasible?
And how hard/easy is it for XP based apps to read Win98 files?
