argh

So, after much fiddling with switches and finally deciding to abandon the old drive completely, I got the new hard drive to work. I went in and partitioned it without problem, but soon found a new problem; I've lost my windows 2000 CD. I could install linux, but even then, installing win2k over top can be a pain, since it would nuke the MBR. Also, installing linux is a massive, frustrating pain in the ass that usually ends up taking a couple days befor everything is working correctly. Which I haven't the patience for.

So I guess I'll jsut keep dragging my laptop back and forth to work every day until I figure out a place to get a new win2k disc. I;d even considering buying a copy, except that you can't, any longer. I'm fairly ambivalent about buying windows XP.

Computers suck. I shoulda been a carpenter.

XP is actually a lot more stable than 2000 (which, I admit , is like saying "The Spider-Man Weeble-Wobble is WAY more stable than the Aqua-Man Weeble-Wobble!")..but yeah, must do Win install first or it blows lilo.

But imagine the problems you would have had trying to play giant monkey games with wood blocks instead of a computer.

Ah, but then I could actually build a giant wooden monkey! And rent it out to armies attacking Troy!
