Default What should i do?

I've got one of these

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/bph08186.pdf

It just sits around gaining dust.... It went crazy and now i got no recovery cds, what should i do with it?

I'm thinking i might just install linux on it and build my 3rd and best computer yet!

What do you think?

That's perfect for you. If you never dealt with Linux and you got a working computer for you to tinker with, by all means, install LInux and explore. I'm with you on the idea. Do you have another computer you're using now? You can always build another one especially when all these new CPUs coming out and video cards too.
