Get Belarc Advisor and it will id all the components; then go to manufacturers' sites to get the latest drivers.

As he has only a floppy drive you may have problems - any chance that you can fit a CD-R drive for the short time it will be necessary?

to being with the PC may need some upgrading...especially in the processor and memory department and you can go to click here as they do have the old memory but you maybe stuck with the processor...so really you may need a full upgrade for a whole new PC...you can purchase programs that allow you to mirror the hard drive in other words it copies everything from the old hard drive onto the new one...but since its Win 95 some of the files may not be compatible with Win 98. so I would get some research done on this first before doing anything...otherwise its a full format. but one more thing would be to put the 2gb hdd into a PC that has a CDRW and even tho it may have win95 you should be able to copy the files from the hdd to CD via another OS like 98/Me/2000/XP...

Yes, everest is actually better I think...

If you have a CD- R drive it will be simple to slot it in for a short time.
