There's only one hard drive, and I'm pretty sure it's set to master. I'll check tomorrow afternoon, so I'll be less likely to stay up until 0230 trying to figure it out, like last night.

Does the HDD have a boot program in the boot sector?
Good question. If neither Linux nor Windows XP cds install that, but instead, expect it to already be there, that could easily be the problem. Does booting with a cd bypass the problem? I'm running mprime successfully with a boot cd.
