Thanks for the reply, Marilyn.

I've managed to scrounge up a 386 with a monochrome monitor. But also 
have aquired a color monitor and a slow video card in case I need color.

We applied for the Mars Site the week after the workshop, but so far we 
haven't received any thing.  I do have the Lego Dacta sets so I'm alright 
there.  I'm just waiting to see exactly what we get and what I need to 
get started. I've managed to set up the eighth grade teachers with a 
storage area for building the mars site in.  We intend to use a camera in 
the room to transmit to a display with a TV in it, so kids can see the 
site underconstruction.

I'll need lots of advice when we get started, so I'm glad that you and 
the other PTK advocates are so supportive.  Thanks again for the info.
