|Thanks for the help, folks.|
trvir: No, no boot menu. I've tried all of the F-keys and can't get to SAFE mode or any other startup options. Don't have either Knoppix or Ubantu. Can I download and create a CD? Once I load it, then what?
paulsep: Got the CD, just not the Key. How do I go about getting to the hard drive if I have the CD? When the system boots without the CD, it goes all the way through to the Login screen, but won't accept the the ID or password.
Screwfix: See above. The key is no longer legible. This is a way old Averatec 3200.
