You are very welcome. I am glad I could help. I love this laptop - it's VERY old and still is able to run on batteries for 3 hours... I was lucky and I was able to max out the amount of ram with 2 x 512 MB chips. On top of that PCLinuxOS brings new life to this older machine.
Me too Andy, it has been a backup machine to my old, very old, tower. I did find a D630 going for $180 on ebay, and am replacing it for the c610. But it (c610) will go to a dad/daughter for their use, and I'm sure get more years of wear.
Seems, for me anyway, the Dell line has been good for my use, I do have the install disks for XP (Home and Pro), and did a backup on Win7 which came with the machine. I keep them in case I need Windows (pack-rat, I guess). But looking forward to running PCLinuxOS on the new machine. I have a Live remaster of my tower, and it rocks on the new machine, just with helping friends haven't had time to install it.
The only thing I miss from XP or 7, are the Skype displays, our linux version is so basic compared to the other OS. But, ya know, I can live with that for the easy of use and function on PCLinuxOS.
Thank again for your help, and I wish you many more years of service with your lappy too!
