If you don't have a phone line, then why were you bothering to configure
a modem?

Just to tune a PC. The old PC was kicked off in the street about week
ago. It was big temptation not to leave it. A lot of stuff find a new
place - floppy, second hard; cdrw. And modem.
Actually, what is possible to do with motherboard and Duron 750 Mgz
inside and Pc case? Back to bin?

OK. Learning experience.

That PC should be able do almost anything. It may not be the best for
watching movies but OTOH, with the right video card you could probably
watch DVDs.

You could provide a public service: find garbage boxes that really work
and see if there's a local charity that would like them. Even something
like a thrift store. You could have them all set up ready to go and
include a little booklet with the root password and what the user would
have to do to run pppconfig to connect to an ISP.

Thanks Doug. Charity is not best way. And there is not PPP services
perhaps. Will try to use a power supply as DC power supply for radio
tranceiver. And motherboard lets stay in shelf until better times.
