a used one that has been "tested and verified" but on Linux, not Windows.
The PC stops and posts a "Run-Time Error R6003 - Integer Divide By 0" error
during boot. The debugging info I have gotten from the web suggests a
problem with BIOS settings namely that virus detection is enabled in BIOS.
Can any one enlighten me further on this problem? i.e. what is going on
here? how do I get around it? The PC in question is an older one with a
Pentium ll and 256MB RAM as I recall, the BIOS options are fairly limited
and I don't recall anything in BIOS that affects virus detection.
I've been trying to install Win98ME when I get this error but I also have XP
Home that I can use instead. Will this OS make a difference?

If you run out of other things to try, you can try the following:
1) Connect _only_ the dodgy drive.
2) Set up the boot order to boot from a floppy.
Or CD if you use the CD version.
3) Get a copy of DBAN and use as few passes as possible to
do an erase of the drive (quick erase?).
That may clean anything objectionable off the drive.
