The system isn't all that old, it has a PS/2 mouse connector but I
don't have a (decent) PS/2 mouse whereas I do have some very usable
Mouse Systems optical mice.

It's all up and running now and seems pretty OK running Ubuntu 7.0.4,
it has 384Mb of memory, a 40Gb hard disk and an AMD K5 (I *think*)
