This is an excellent forum! I actually did a search but could not find an answer that addressed my particular problem. I was given an older computer because it wouldn't boot up. System specs: WinXP Pro, Version 2202, Service Pk 1 - AMD Athlon XP2200+, 1.80 GHz with 512 MB RAM. I used the Windows disk that came with it and did a recovery and now it will boot up. I got it cleaned up and it's working and I have ordered the Service Pk 2 disk from Microsoft. My main problem is I live in a very rural area with dialup internet service only and the computer does not have a modem. The person who had this computer built did not need one. I know internal modems are really cheap now and having the modem installed is not a problem, there is a slot but I'm not sure what kind I should get. Will any new modem work or should I try to find a used modem for this older system? Will drivers be a problem? The computer is just going to be used by kids doing homework and checking email. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated very much.
