Wow! First of all, I've been getting lots of responses to my questions.

I'm running NetBSD on a Micron Transport Xke laptop (166MHz Pentium-type
machine) and it runs great. All I need the machine to do is display PowerPoint

up into StarOffice without running much else.

If you have any suggestions on how best to accomplish this, I'd be very

Take care,
