[vox-tech] Hosed HD

Turns out that I'm stupid, and it wasn't the IDE controller on my mother board 
that was broken; it was the disc itself that wasn't bootable.  I burned a new 
copy of the installation media, and it works just fine.

However, this hard drive which I'm currently having problems with is the third 
hard drive that this computer has burned through.  The first two were IBM 
Desk Star HD's, and I didn't give it much thought because that model is 
notoriously unstable, from what I've heard.  But this new one is supposed to 
be much better, yet it only lasted a year.

Is the fact that I'm on my third hard drive in six years indicative of 
something more deeply wrong with my system than just my bad luck in buying 
hard drives?
