I'm just [right now] getting [a]round to burning some disks and writing a floppy or two that might assist me in getting over or [a]round that logon password 'hurdle'... thanks to rdave13 and simplesimon1 for that.
Also, I've had a look at the contents of the charity shop computer's hard disk, bumpkin, [using Easus partition manager] and I would rather try to keep that intact as there are some 'nifty' programmes on it :o) It's a doddle to open the case BTW ... just press 2 buttons on each side lift up the top and 'hey-presto' ... all is revealed.
Devil Fish ... will have a gander at that link of yours as well. Thanks.
I don't tend to hurry things and will let you all know how it goes.
