Sharpen B&W old photos

I am trying to create a CD of old and up to date family photographs.  Some of the old B&W photos are very blurry. I have downloaded Picassa from Google and it helps some, but I'm wondering if there is anything else I can do to sharpen these.
Also would like to know the best way to put 2 or 3 of these photos into one picture. Since resolution is bad, when in View as Slide Show I think it would look better if they displayed in a smaller size rather than full screen.  I can do this is PowerPoint but I'm not sure if this is reducing the resolution more.

If you know anyone with Photoshop, the smart-sharpen filter will do a decent (admittedly, not fantastic) job here.
The Gimp which is available for free might have a similar filter...

As far as Powerpoint goes; when you double click a photo and click the size tab, make sure that the percentage is at 100%. Then no re-sampling is taking place and you'll have no loss of image quality.

Attached is your photo after spending less than a minute in Photoshop using the smart-sharpen filter.
