Re: [vox] Dead Computer

The saga of this strange little computer continues.

I poked around in the BIOS again and found that no drive was set as the 
primary master, so I set the hard drive as the primary master.  I was then 
able to get the computer to boot back into Windows 98.

I decided, on a lark, to set the DVD/CD-ROM drive as the primary master.  When 
I did so, I got an error message telling me that the drive was not ATAPI 
compatible.  Perhaps that explains why I was never able to get this computer 
to boot from the CD-ROM drive, no matter how I messed with the boot sequence.

I dunno.  Ted's suggestion of taking the hard drive out and doing the work on 
another computer seems more and more promising.
