Request for advice on computer purchasing

I am looking into attempting to grab a real cheap used computer to install
a Linux distro on, and I am looking for recommendations from the list on
good Boston-area (inside 495) stores to pick up equipment and/or desktop
computers at very reasonable prices.  This is going to be a hobby computer,
and I don't have very much cash.  I'm looking for something with 32M
memory, a CD-ROM drive at any speed, a 1G hard drive, and that's about all.
I'm not looking to do some major crunching, so I don't think processor
speed is going to be too much of an issue.

I would even be willing to buy a motherboard in a case and put the rest
together myself.

Please forward your thoughts to my email address.  Thank you in advance for
your responses.
