Thank you for the information. I will check out Virtual Box from Sun!
This box is a Celeron 2.6 GHz. Integrated Intel stuff on the
motherboard, which was made for Dell by Foxconn I think. I think it is
the only one of our 4 Dell Dimension boxes that had a rather stock ATX
motherboard and PSU. The PSU was replaced after New Years Day with one
that just plugged right in. No proprietary connectors.  :-)   I won it
in a raffle from Colgate Palmolive, in the superstore where we do most
of our shopping. It came with 256 MB of RAM and I bought another 256
MB for it. I think, possibly, it can hold up to 1 GB of RAM. I need to
check that out. One of these days I will take the time to try to get
audio out of the microphone, with the Skype Beta for Linux. Other
people have it working, so I believe it is one or more configuration
settings, somewhere, that are incorrect.
