Hardware Fun

A friend gave me a cast-off desktop, a white Gateway. He had it set up to be his MythTV box, doing network boot. I tried to get it going and it kept saying it couldn't find a bootable drive and looking for something in the A:. Finally figured out what BIOS mod was necessary — the drive was set as the secondary drive on the IDE bus — and now it's booting and running and installing.

Now I'm putitng on XP SP3. That should take another hour.....
