    I would just fdisk, format and re-install.....

    Or load home on a different partition.....
    There is an article in this months tech net mag about some boot manager prog - as its my sitting on the lav whilst taking a long dump read, I have not got round to it yet.....

    Thanks for the advice. CPM seems like a nice option right about now....

    LOL. What you want is a nice Debian or FreeBSD installation!

    *runs*

    I dont remember CPM. I was born in 1988...so yh, before my time too.

    I remember the Amstrad CPC though! We had one. Dr Logo ftw!
