Thanks Christopher,
I had read a similar answer to your first paragraph. What gives me pause is
that all had been going well with this particular machine, except for my own
stupid screwups, and then this showed up a day or so ago.

I'm a little afraid it wont boot after i shut it down to mess with the bios.
As it is, I did a relog with a new user and my desktop wont come up. Looks
like things are going to hell very quickly.
