	Happy to say, I was able to get the bad HD to run on this 
computer after setting it for "Cable Select (CS). I learned 
this from a friend. The bad HD is now running on this computer.

	I used dd to copy the bad HD to my /dev/sda13 partition but 
it was done wrong I think. The bad HD has two windows 
programs, one on C: and one on D: and don't ask me why. I 
copied both C: and D: to the same partition which is wrong it 
appears...

	Now the bad HD can be mounted and files copied to a cd. I 
will try to get this done asap.
