Firstly, I would like to thank both Ben Nizette and Ian Bardsley for 
their prompt and helpful replies.

"http://www.android-x86.org/" looks too technical for me, but has links 
to "HowTos" that may turn out to be very helpful.

desktop/1352/" probably has all that I was looking for.

It is possible that my budget Tablet may do all that I need, if I knew 
how to follow the instruction on:


which reads: 

"Capture the QR Code with your *phone's barcode scanner*". 

It is beyond my ability to translate this instruction to something that 
will work on my Tablet (full Tablet specs at "http://www.dealextreme.com/

I would therefore welcome additional guidance (especially as many other 
applications provide a barcode rather than a URL for downloading).
