Ok. [Insert long, bizarre story here.] Ants ate the hard drive to my laptop! It no longer works. As the laptop has some problems with it, I don’t want to put any money in it. I would still however like to use it for light word processing/note taking when I’m on the road.
The floppy drive still works. The DVD player still works. It’s a Pentium 2 with 128MB of memory. It also has a LAN card and I have a desktop I can network it to.
Is there any way I can get it to work without a hard drive? Is there an operating system I can run just off of the CD? Maybe I can set up a portion of the RAM as a RAMdisk. Is there a simple DOS-based shareware/freeware word processor that I could run? I need to be able to produce files I can export to MS Word later.
I sincerely appreciate any advise anyone can give me.
Thanks in advance.
