    One of the blessings of age is having learned - often the hard way - that forethought can save a LOT of grief.

    While we wait for Coinnach let's talk about Apache/MySQL/PHP installers. Ya know a good one (or two)?

    Got it!!! Though it took a while - remember dialup. I checked and the file size is exactly the same as the one I did down to the byte. Go figure. Anyway, I'm going to get offline here and back online over there. Then I'll reboot into safe mode. <earther quakes in boots> Give me a few.

    It's trying to load DC said it would take a long time. Hope I picked the right HD - they had exactly the same name. Still nothing but the flashing thing in the upper left corner. Is there a back button?

    HELP!! Did I break it?

    I don't think I'm getting into safe mode. It says 'Please select boot device'. I picked the right drive and it booted Windows. Maybe it's not F8 on my motherboard??

    A normal windows boot with sound and everything loaded. Doesn't safe mode look a little funny? This was just like usual.

    Reboot your computer while holding or tapping the F8 key. Choose Safe Mode or Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.

    Nope. It's not happening. Do I need to change my BIOS so that the boot HD is the first? Right now it's floppy, CD, HD.
