Thanx, I'll go find the MS knowledge base. XP recognizes the hda drive, as
a C drive, and Linux is also on some other partitions on this drive. But
are two more physical drives in the box, which BIOS can see, but XP can't.
I'll try Linux on them, and see what I can do that way. It's goofy. (I've
been running another version of Linux on another box, since with the
Ethernet connection on this MOBO, Linux can't read the mail. Nothing's
ever easy.)
