I found out something I didn't know . . .

I was given a pristine little 1997 IBM ThinkPad. Impressive specs, 16 Meg of RAM and a whopping 2 Gig HD. It had W95 and all I needed to do was replace the CMOS battery (five bucks at Radio Shack). Booted up perfectly. I installed W98SE, located a 16 bit PCMCIA LAN card, jumped onto my network and viola.
Now I know there is no longer any support for W95, W98, W98SE, or ME. But just for grins I clicked Start, Windows Update, and guess what? Went to the update site and there were all the updates. Just finished the 11 critical updates now running the next 40.
I have on order a 32 Meg RAM chip that will max it out.
