try linux mandrake

by MLGR In reply to please help me !!!!!!!

my tip is linux mandrake 7.2 or 8.1
depending on which kernel you have. since
you didnt
give any info on your notebook like cpu,
ram nor hd its quit hard to be more
specific. staroffice 5.2 is reliable and
works on all platforms.

Try a Boot Disk?

by dcrowe In reply to please help me !!!!!!!

I might try a boot disk (95/9 first to make sure the thing will even work before trying to turn it into Lazarus. If it has a CD-ROM, I'd try a '98 boot disk.
