Winlinux 2003 CD - Got it - Need resistration # - !!!


I bought a Winlinux 2003 CD and it installs just dandy on my almost defunct (with winmodem) dumpster-retrieved Dell. It requires an installation # to boot
and I'd like to see it run. There is as far as I can determine, absolutely nothing on the net as far as registration numbers (which is all I need) or further information to help me run the thing.

Can someone point me to a start-up code? Or failing that, definitively tell me that I have a fossil?

Thanks.

I have never heard of Winlinux, it's not in the Distrowatch list, so my bet is that it's a fossil indeed.

There are enough free Linux versions (distributions) that there is no percentage in trying to make this thing work. That said, one would normally go to the seller with such a question.

To install Linux, go to http://distrowatch.com and pick something from the top ten on their "hit list"

Hmmmm---OP posted essentially the same question in Oct 2006, but did not follow-up.
Suggest no more posts here unless he/she shows.........
