Pete -

I had this problem with one of my old p2 machines some years back and had
contact a bios specialist to get a replacement bios.  I could find no
solution, but an updated bios fixed it.  Have you checked to see if you
flash it to an updated version?
He's trying to flash it to an updated version.

Pete, perhaps someone in your general area has a win9x installed harddrive
they could lend you? Either that or you need a bios expert.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
