I can't do a Windows reinstall without the floppy drive, on account of having SATA HDDs. Mind you, I hope I'll never need to either - once was enough! (And before you ask, Windows will only recognise a floppy drive for this, nothing else will do.)
Jackcoms we are just gettin old my daughter a couple of years ago heard a abba song on tv and asked if i had it, i did but it was on a lp after i had put it on the turn table and played it for her she asked how do i rewind it?
One of the first good things I've heard about Vista, lol. A friend of mine in Holland is cursing Vista having had to buy a pc with it installed after his xp machine blew up! 75% of the programs he needs do not like vista and he's had to put xp on and make it into a dual boot machine.
