bad news and good news on the computer front.

Bad news: still can't get the desktop booted.
Good news: can't get it booted because the 80gb drive I had around the house has an old windows install on it and it's hanging. Either I'm a blind idiot or I can't remember how to get to DOS. formatting the drive is a perfectly reasonable option to me (though I'd prefer hanging onto the files and just stripping the windows directory then reinstalling it).

Thoughts, suggestions? Would be appreciated.
  • Don't you work for microsoft?
    • Yeah, but in a somewhat rarified field. If you were doing graphic design for Blue Cross, let's say, and had trouble at home with your health insurance that you wanted to try and handle the same night and knew there were folks on your friendslist who make their living wrestling health insurance, wouldn't you ask them for their input?
