couple years ago I picked up an IBM thinkpad real cheap because it had a
corrupted M$ OS that no one could get to work right.

Just FYI: IBM sells reconditioned second-hand Thinkpads on their web site -
not really cheap, but they are cleaned up, fitted with a new battery (which
ain't cheap), tested, etc. I'm on my third Thinkpad and swear by them; RH9
installed very smoothly on my T22. Disclaimer: IBM is my biggest client so
I don't look very hard at alternatives - although they never batted an
eyelid when I used to march into IBM offices with an Acer laptop. . .
