How did your friend type on it?

In XP, neither the mouse nor the keyboard work, so I have no idea. I am considering putting Ubuntu on it and using it as a comp to learn how to use Ubuntu, though the Acer BIOS might not like it. It's only a P4 machine, so it's more of a case of an interesting challenge.
And to whoever changed the name of this topic, if I didn't myself, thanks!
