It would be a bad idea to get a Windows 2000 computer, if you want to 
use SignWriting. SignWriter DOS does not work on Windows 2000.

SignWriter DOS only works on Windows 95, 98, 98se, and ME. SignWriter 
Java works on all operating systems, if you have the proper version of 
Java installed.

I have never heard of Windows 97, which you mention above. Are you sure 
it isn't 98?

And the 500 MB hard drive, which is terribly small, and makes it 
impossible for you to install much of anything...was actually not my 
question. I wanted to know how much internal memory you had...but now I 
see, if you don't have a hard drive that is at least 1 gigabyte, you 
can barely function in modern software...Val ;-)
