it turns out that ordering a computer from Walmart was a mistake.
They sent me the wrong computer.
I don't understand why. The item listed in my online order was
clearly different than the item printed on the packing list attached
to the shipping box.
Perhaps they have a literacy problem in their warehouse.
At least the return was easy; I just took the box to my local
Walmart and they accepted it and then put the correct credit
on my credit card.
Then, I went to Frys.
I showed the spec of the Walmart machine that I wanted.
They easily beat Walmart with an 'open-box' special which is
a customer returned computer still under warranty.
I got an HP Pavilion a1340n for about $500.
It has 1G RAM,
1 R-W DVD drive
and 1 R-O DVD drive.
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.66GHz
It has an ATI grapics card but I'm not sure how to use
a shell command to give me information about it.
I looked at dmesg output and saw nothing about the grapics card.
How might I get info about my graphics card?
Pop the case open and look at the chip, if it doesn't void the
warranty... It looks like it uses an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chipset.
