when i get it reinstalled, (no the repair feature didn't work) i'll let you
know how smart i was to have a separate hard drive just for data -too bad MS
isn't smart enough to keep all my settings, email, downloads, updates (that
reminds me - i think i have to download service pack again (i'm on dialup))
high scores and program files on a separate drive -- because i DON'T WANT TO
DO THIS EVERY 9 MONTHS

The repair feature wouldn't work if your HD failed, as the repair 'drive' is
only a partition on the main one. That's why all of us need to have our data
on separate drives (I have a 500GB Firewire setup) - and a set of backup
discs, just in case it wasn't a HD failure that caused the problem. Oh, and
all our downloads saved to DVDs etc., too. Good luck with your restoration.

One word, WinRot. Look it up on Google. Any MS-Windows product needs at
least one enema in it's life cycle.
