When I was student I learned Autocad in the begining of 1990. Now I work with the 2006 version. The initial R14 version I do not have anymore, however I woud like to get te R14 again, just to remember the the old good times...
Anyone can advise where I can get the R14 version ?
Wasn't R14 more like 1999? Are you looking to spend money? From what I've been told, you can't legally use the license from exisitng software unless it came with the company you bought. Perhaps you should be looking into the occasional special pricing on LT on this site, or for more of a "2004-feel" you may want to check out Progecad...
I don't understand the problem. If AutoDesk still owns the rights to R14 and you are willing to pay them for it then it should be a legal transaction. I don't want something for free. I just want something I can afford. Plus I am retired. I'm not in this for a job. I just need a reliable cad software to draw up plans for some home imporvements. I don't want any of these illegal copies you find all over the internet. I just want a legal copy from the legal owner, AutoDesk. Why is that so hard to understand?

Sounds like commercial use to me (even if you are your only customer).
"....Now I work with the 2006 version..."
"...just to remember the the old good times..."
Ha! that's a new one
"... to draw up plans for some home imporvements...."
There are many legit free dwg compatible software out there, go grab one or three and use them: to me, they are very R14-R2000-R2004 like and would work for you.
Your post is "funky", especially when you add that you are willing to pay for a dead product for casual personal use: really? if you got money to burn I'm sure the authors of the free CAD software you find will gladly take a contribution, go that route. Or hop on eBay and make someone else rich, maybe someone that wants a cashier's check up front sent to mailbox in Hong Kong
