Hi Mr. Teague.

I read your message below and hope I can help. I may be able to ship you
down a complete working 386 system with a hard drive. I may also be able
to hook you up with more donations. In return I would hope that you can
provide me with a receipt showing I made this donation that can be used
for a tax deduction.

Please let me know if this is feasible and we'll talk some more.
