anybody got advice for Alex?

Mine is: grab 'em both and go from there; they're
old enough that there's a good chance all the
subsystems are known to the linux software folks.
    if not, then you (or your surrogate, possibly
someone from sf-lug) learned a lot by head-wall
beating and at last resort the machines can be
donated to a school or techno-reclamation bunch
(of which there are two or three at least in the sf
bay area).
    An alternative approach is to look through the
linux compatibility lists first (not my way, grab 'em
and then look things up, but I tend to shoot from
the hip).
