Hello all!
I have lots of question about one item, a Gatway solo 2000

Q1: On the back of the screen of the laptop it says Gateway2000 Solo. On the bottom it says Gateway 2000 Model no: Solo 2300. So it it a solo 2300 or a 2000 solo

The Computer has a Pentium 133 mhz Cpu and 64 Mb of ram .It has no hd. On the sides it has:2 usb ports, power, lpt port, Ir port, Vga port, serial port, PS2 port, a composite video out, 2 PCMIA ports, a mic, line in, line out, headphones and volume control, not to mention the dock port. i have a cd drive for it but cant open it because the button busted off. The reason it has 64 mb of ram is that is the only stick i can find for it. I also Have a floppy drive for it. I have gotten it to boot off a floppy into MS-Dos.

Q2: Can i somehow get it to run win 95 on it off a old Flash Drive? If So How?

Q3: Is there a place where i can get info about it? If so, Where is it?

Q4: I was planing on using it to control stuff with its lpt port. How can I Wirelessly communicate with it?

Help would be appreciated
Thanks in advance.

it might be a solo 2300

2. no OS can't be installed onto a Flash drive, cuz they need a real computer to actually work they can't be transferred that is illegal


4. to do that you will have to setup a network and have it hook up to the network wirelessly but, only if it has wireless capabilities

hope this helps

You could install some of the minimal Linux flavors on a flash drive. Pretty sure Win95 is completely unaware of flash drives. Aside from that, I agree with all of Upendra09's advice.
