Hi.
I want to install java on my Windows XP SP3 box, not to allow it to run in a browser, but rather to run simple programs in a dos box -- my son is learning the language, and now so am I. I am familiar with several other programming languages.

I'm finding it very difficult to find out which version of java I can install, where to get it, and how to get it running in a DOS box, despite lots of Googling. So here I am.

I'm trying to connect a Zip 100 drive using the parallel port but XP Pro doesn't see it.  I've downloaded and installed the latest  Iomega driver.
I've done this:

4. Click the plus (+) symbol next to Ports.
5. Double-click the Printer Port icon.
6. Click the Port Settings tab.
7. Within the Filter Resource Method box, click Use any interrupt
assigned to port.
8. Click Enable legacy plug and play detection to place a check mark.
9. Click OK and then close the Computer Management Window.
10. Restart your computer for changes to take effect.
Zip still does not get assigned a drive letter.

3. Click on "Ports (COM & LPT)" section, and click on "ECP Port".

6. Select "Don't search - I will Choose Driver to Install", click "Next"
7. Select "Show Compatible Hardware"
8. Select "Standard Port" on the left window and "Printer Port" on the right window
9. Click on "Next" and Click on "Finish" and close all windows

Hello, I'm currently having issues with trying to update my computer to a newer Windows instalment. I was recently given an old-ish Windows XP computer by a family member and they completely wiped the computer and refreshed it back to its factory settings. Ever since I've received it, I've been trying to gain access to the internet so I can update its anti-virus as well as update it to more modern instalments of Microsoft Windows.

However every time I've tried connecting it, it says that the wireless wifi networks (that ARE in range) are apparently not or it has lost connection to them? Please help me, as I feel like I'm running in circles trying to find out how to fix it :(
