I use the alternate CD out of habit, it wasn't necessary in this case.
We've been working with older boxes we recycle and found the alternate cd
more reliable for installations with lesser capacity.  It also allows us to
use the OEM feature on the alternate cd.  I burned at minimum speed and used
the check disk feature.

I'm leery of re-installing because this is a dual boot with vista and is
mission critical.  I can connect hardwire and if I must go wireless I can go
to the other side, Thats why I know that is something with Hardy.  Using the
same hardware and access I'm able to connect with MS and with 7.1
