Yeah, free. Its hard though because the company arent giving them away to be technical. They are throwing them out - but the techine accidentitlly forgot to throw a couple out - damn - he will take them home and dispose of them there. I will ask ArrizX - I will ask.

Ive ordered a 100GB hard drive, and another 1GB RAM - im going to be cruising on this baby.

Got a wireless router already..cant wait

But Im really worried about having to put this HDD in, I mean, what do I open, and how, and is is a standard IDE connection...or SATA - I dont know!!

Me?! How am I too far? I'll even give you some extra for the trouble if it's possible. Like if it's way to much of a huge deal and it'll be like almost impossible then forget it. I'm just saying if it's possible that would be awsome if you could get me one.
