    SubjectRE: USB stability - possibly printer related
    I will have to reboot to find this out.  However, it was the latest
    available a couple months ago when I bought the drive, and found out the
    normal BIOS for the regular IDE controllers hung the computer when it hit
    the 40GB drive during boot.

    There was a BIOS update targeting problems with the newer IBM drives
    on the 366 - what HPT BIOS did give you problems?

    Thanks for a tip - I'll try it. Hopefully the two are not USB and HPT :-S
