If you don't mind me asking, what does it end up costing to do this?  I
found a barebones MSI-1032 for about $600.  I also found a bunch that
are "fully loaded."  The fully loaded ones were too expensive.  They
cost as much as I paid for my new Dell and I got dual core, a higher
resolution screen, more memory, a 7200 RPM hard drive, and 3 year on
site service.

I understand not wanting to send any cash towards Microsoft, though.  I
just can't see spending that much more money to do it.
