I'm guessing that the drive has been made into a dynamic disk which as far as I know, can't be read in win95-winxp home edition. Might be wrong about xp home.

Dynamic disk is a software version of RAID apparently. I was thinking about trying it out on my machine until some nice person told me it's a software RAID. I'm staying away from RAID (and dynamic disks) coz it won't benefit me. :)

well when you do get the computer back up, try using fdisk in msdos, delete the partition (if you don't want whats on the disk), hopefully then msdos will see the disk as a raw drive and then just format it. could work, could not, but worth a try.

Well neither is our government if we all stop and think about it...

Where have any of you seen where it says in our constitution that we have to pay taxes? It doesnt, taxes were inacted to pay for the wars our country faced very early on in our existence... We do have need for them don't get me wrong, Im just saying that we probably dont need nearly as much as we have now to support our military...

I served for 9 years (90-99) in the US Navy... somehow some way, our government needs to evaluate and fix our taxation...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
