   I used to have a PS/2 50 (286) that worked fine as a word processor
with Word 6. The wife of one of my professors uses a 286 this way also.
So it makes a good typewriter.
   Change of subject: muLinux 6r4 detects my /dev/psaux mouse fine, but I
still cannot startx on my 486/33 at work. The startx.log says:
xinit: can't load library ''.
