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
