I have not even attempted to put Windows on it (never bought the program
because I was only going to use Linux on this box). The CD drive (LG E-IDE
Model GSA-H55NK) is a combo CD-R/DVD+-R combo hooked up in slave
configuration on the same PATA cable as my hard drive. I know all the
peripherals work because I installed openSUSE early this morning to use
until I can get Kubuntu to work. Thanks again for all your help!
