Success with a new bigger hard disk - in fact about the smoothest install I've ever done on one of these, possibly because the DVD drive appears to be in very good condition. Unfortunately it turns out that all of the RAM I have is either smaller than I want or the speed that's right for a 1.25ghz machine but wrong for this one, so that'll be a fun delay while it wings its way from Hong Kong. But so far the upgrade is looking good, the screen is undamaged and working well - I initially thought it was too dark and had a fault, turns out the previous owner turned the brightness right the way down - and fingers crossed it'll all go well.
