You need an ADSL modem, a cable, a network card, software.
Windows 2000 provides wizards for network and Internet connection setup. Wizards break down a task into individual steps and guide the user through the steps one at a time.

There is a great tutorial here..

There should be an ethernet connector on the back or side and you can plug an ethernet cable into it ....if you have more than one compter then you would need a router to hook more than one computer to your internet connection.

I am not able to install Windows XP on Compaq Presario CQ60-104TU


Recommend removing OLD DOS Operating system First. Then Install Windows XP. XP will NOT upgrade older systems unless it's Windows 98 and Fully Updated. However, can NO Longer do because Microsoft does NOT support any versions other than "2000/ME/XP/Vista".

External ps/2 key board not conected after attach usb converter


Yes, this is correct. If you connect a ps2 keyboard *after* Windows has started, you must reboot to have Windows "see" this keyboard.
This is "by design". A USB keyboard can be plugged in anytime.

When you get the logon screen tap control alt and delete together until you get a different sign in screen.  Remove her name and type in administrator without a password.  This should let you in.  Go to control panel, users and remove her password.
