    I'm looking for an old latop.

    Minimum Requirements:
    - Able to run (meaning have available drivers for) Windows 98 SE.
    - Only needs enough HD space to hold Win98 and one other small program.
    - Must have a CD Drive.
    - Must have a floppy drive.
    - Must have a serial port .

    A USB port would be nice, but not requred.
    An RJ45 port would be nice, but not required.

    Whats the model number of the Toshiba? I need to know for sure if the drivers are available as it must run Win98 for what I need it to do.
