Ok, I'm clueless. I have a used computer, Celeron Processor, 64 MB RAM, no operation sytem installed and a disk with Microsoft ME. What do I do now? Thanks.

When starting up the computer press the "Del" key until you get into the BIOS. Search around until you find the "Boot Sequence".
Select your CD Rom as the 1st boot device. Save & Exit. The computer should then boot onto the CD. Follow the instructions from there. You may find it a bit slow (with only 64Mb Ram). Also you did not post your processor size.

If you have a new Hard Drive the programme should ask you some questions regarding formatting.

You must select LBA mode if your have a large hard drive.

If you already have an operating system on the Hard Drive, it would be prudent to use FDISK. (Post back with your E-Mail address and I will E-Mail you with instructions if you have to do this).

Keep us posted

Thanks Radio Operator. There is no OS on the computer, so I'll be loading it on from scratch. I'll follow your instructions

The processor is a three hundred and something megahertz (?), Celeron. Can you, or anyone else, tell me how to add more memory? I know 64 Mb is not much. I know you can buy memory everywhere, but what do I need to know to buy the right type? Also, for simple web surfing (cable connection), how much do I need with this processor? How much would it cost?? Thanks!

The RAM upgrade should be fairly simple, take the RAM chip you have got to the shop and they will be able to advise. The processor size will be limited to the Specifications of the motherboard. Do you know what make / model the motherboard is ?. If we can find this info we should be able to advise.

You should get the information from the motherboard manual.
