Ack. I seem to have some sort of hardware problem that isn't allowing me to boot on my main machine. I was running fine, Explorer threw an error, aw, let's be safe, and reboot, rebooted, and it crashes on amdagp.sys. Crud. Win98 on another disk wouldn't boot either, except in safe mode, and linux, on another partition of that HDD gives some sort of wierd scsi error.

The nasty thing is, Win2K won't even boot from the installation CD. Which makes it look really, really like a hardware error. Ack, thpthth. Okay, let's crack the case, reseat the cards, vacuum the dust, and try again. If that doesn't work, start pulling cards, try a new video card, etc. If that doesn't work, buy a new motherboard.


At least I've got reasonably current backups.
