Q: I'm looking for software to prep people for their GED. It is for a teen
drop in center, and due to their (donated) hardware limitations, I am
trying to find something that will run on minimally configured IBMs...
can anyone help me?
A:The U.S. Dept. of Education has a gopher server with a lot of good (and FREE) educational software on it. Most of the programs I've tried are written for DOS and will run on just about anything. The host is gopher.ed.gov, it also allows public ftp access but it is a lot harder to find the files. If you don't have gopher, it is available via anonymous FTP from lister.cc.ic.ac.uk in the directory /pub/wingopher.
