My main board in for repair is an AMD. That's all I'[ve run for years. 
This is my first Intel MB, and it's given me nothing but fits. Any more 
of this and I'll be pronounced "king" for St Vitus Day. Maybe I'll 
install the 3/1 inch floppy drive and flash this thing, just for ducks. 
The DVD player fired up "Dick Tracy and Nancy Drew" like a champ. 
Yeah... don't say it, although they don't make 'em like Nancy anymore. 
:) But it really hates Arnold and Hogwarts. If it won't play Monty 
Python, Ill take a hammer to it. Will 11.10 support a floppy?? Ric
