I'll be off-line in a few hours - for a coupla weeks...

I know that Mo Nozy (< hehe), rocket, and BDA will miss me greatly. Gotta reformat the old hard drive so I can sell it to my friend tomorrow. Speaking of which, which of you can I call to walk me through that process? I just know I'll phuck it up on my own. Could be 10-11 PM Eastern DST (7-8 PM here) though, so keep that in mind. Shall talk with you all on a regular basis again down the road.

Good luck Baccy.

Only way I've ever obliterated a drive was with a windows install. Maybe someone else will know a way.

Is it a Dell special or something else? You should be able to pop the Windoz CD in the drive and boot the computer up. When it says "press any key to boot from CD..." do so and follow the instructions. Make sure you delete any partitions and do an NTFS format.

Zoltan, the computer is a mail order from ABS Computers. AMD processor, Windoze XP. The XP disk says Magnell Recovery CD.

If you have a recovery CD it should be pretty painless then.

Best way to reformat a drive you are selling is with a hammer. Of course if it is a friend/relative a windows install is likely enough.

Must obey the sheep dog
