Put together the Build your own Sumobot kit. Had an old 450AMD K6-2 laptop that I planned on using to program the bot but I killed it. Decided to do a fresh install of the operating system. Installed the OS and noticed that I had both a C: and D: drive. I didn't want the small 4GB HD partitioned so I wiped the D: drive (it was called Saved Data). Attempted to reinstall the OS with the recovery CD and it said "No go Moe" I need the D: drive to reinstall. So I chucked it up to stupidity and just installed Linux 8.0 instead. So now I need to purchase a serial to USB connector so that I can play with my newer laptop that doesn't have a serial connector. At least till I get the hang of it and can program it using my Linux laptop. In case you were wondering this bot came with an embedded Parallax Basic Stamp 2.
