It's just a case that this PC is the one that the rest of the family
use.  They have software that I honestly haven't tried with either
WINE or Crossover so I don't know if it would work with Linux.

I'd actually love to run a live CD and would without a second thought
but for the fact that for some reason no live CD can access the web on
this PC.  No problem if I pop a hard drive in and do a full install
(I've used small capacity drives for this in the past) all network is
fine.  It's just live CD's don't want to know :-(  Life's too short to
faff around trying to find out what the problem is.  It's probably
beyond my capabilities anyway.
