I appreciate the offer, but this puppy doesn't look like it will take a 
CDRom, it does have a "Port Replicator" that has an ethernet port on it, 
but no place for a CDROM.

I installed debian last night via the floppy install and it worked very 
well.  So now this little bugger is useable =)  Slow... but usable.
