Any ideas on what to do with the Windows 98/Me OS? I am a retiree who works as a volunteer for a convent school computer lab in Baja California. We are using Pentium II hand-me-downs with Spanish-language Microsoft software and are locked into this until we can scratch up the dinero for something better.

I am just looking for ways to keep these things running until I can obtain a stable OS that is supported.

Had an educator from the States visit the other day who said we needed to set up a LAN with software that would monitor the progress of each student, obtain newer computers, etc., etc. The suggestions he made were great, but this community does not have the capital at this point in time to accomplish all that, maybe never. He spent 35 years teaching in the States and apparently is used to having a budget; budgets and cash flow do not exist here.

When he left, he was apparently confused as to how we were able to accomplish anything.

I would appreciate any suggestions regarding a project of this sort that has to run on good intentions and not much else.
