In Iran and Iraq I have found many Computers 486/P1 which can have
only one HD. there is no place/connector for CD-Rom. The Mainboards
are All-In-One-Solutions with no aditional ISA/PCI-Slots.
So USB/Firewire can not used.
Most Computers are without NIC.
The other thing is, that they can not buy any new Hardware...
If you earn only 60-120 US$/month there is no possibility.
Note, that I am collection older Hardware for Kurdistan, Iran,
Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.
