    well, i dont have a floppy drive, so that test is a little difficult to 
    do, but i threw some ram in there that i have used in linux before, and
    i still had the slew of ide error messages. and this harddrive has
    worked in linux before. i'm getting more and more convinced its an ide

    together, altho the thread doesnt really point towards a solution.
