Basic programs you would need might be an antivirus program like Norton, a CD burning program like Nero, and you may find a program like WinRAR useful for opening and creating archived (like .zip or .rar) files. Then there are extras like Microsoft Office, or Sygate firewall Pro.

Do you have an operating system already? XP, Office XP, and Adobe Photo Shop are big files that would be hard for you to download on dialup. I have some things and if you put a request out for specific programs I can see about trying to get them to you.

I also use legally freeware programs such as Irfanview (http://www.irfanview.com/) for viewing graphics, Winamp (http://www.winamp.com/) for playing mp3s, CDex (http://www.cdex.n3.net/) to extract digital audio from my CDs, RazorLame (http://www.dors.de/razorlame/index.php) to encode CDs, SmartFTP (http://www.smartftp.com/) to access ftp sites.

Here are some German eDonkey sites. Getting about 20 things at once actually makes eMule fast!
