I have another similar situation, my mother is in Africa right now, and
she 
needs a word processor on her machine.  (ok, well, not that similar then)
I have Word6.0, but I'd have to snail-mail it to her because it's on
those 
peculiar 1.7meg disks, so I can't just copy the files off -- unless
someone 
has a utility to get around that or something.
I also can't find textmaker anywhere on the web, except a 30-day trial 
version.  If someone has the free home version, or can tell me where to 
get it, I'd like to try that. 
As far as taking notes on a laptop goes, I always used edit.com in DOS.  
It supports all your standard features such as <b>bold</b>,
<i>italics</i> 
etc. as long as you type them by hand in html. :)
That way, I could start typing in <30 seconds from turning it on.
