Back up anything you want to keep..
It's not worth it? This will be an easy fix as soon as I think of somthing. Pentium 3 can easily run linux and basic commands. I personally am going to use it to learn more about networking and secuirity which will be much easier when i have 2 computers.

But if you get to know Ubuntu a little bit, I recommend you to take some time and learn using Linux, and you'll see that you might not even need a graphic environment. Depends on what you are planning to do on that computer...
You can install almost any linux with a floppy with some lilo on it and the cd/dvd contents on the hard drive.
Yes, I plan on using Ubuntu to expand my knowledge of computers.
I actually take it back I do have W2K on it.
I think I am going to try putting Ubuntu on a flashdrive. Maybe that will work. I've never tried it but I am about to.
