Looks pretty standard..  have you taken it apart ?  Does the mobo have  
a header to hook up a floppy drive? Perhaps could use that to boot  
from a floppy and run a bit newer version of the OS. Another option  
might be to take a drive out, install it in another computer and get a  
base OS on there and play from there.
