Well, besides it being completely off topic, the 145b is seriously outdated.  It's
fine for wordprocessing (I guess) but not much else.  I guess if you really wanted
to, you could probably load mklinux on it, but that would be some work, cause it
doesn't have a cdrom, and I don't know if it can get ethernet hookups.  I mean,
paying more than 20 bucks for that 'book would be too much.
