Another week has passed and although quite a number of things are already done, there are still many more to finish.

At work, along with normal work, I've been fighting to have my computer the way I want and need it.
I have a ABIT SA6R mother board and will have there Linux, Windows 9x and Windows NT.
So far, nothing extraordinary.....
But when it comes to the HPT370 IDE RAID controller that the motherboard has for the 3rd and 4th IDE disk controllers, things aren't just as easy as they should, specially under Windows NT 2000.
If I use the device driver that came with the mother board, all is fine until I try to connect a device to the HPT 370 controller. Then, on boot, the driver simply crashes.

Ok, no problem, said I to myself. There is something called Internet and obviously this is a bug of some kind and I only have to go to ABIT's site and get the latest version of the device driver!
I got it, and installed it and, as supposed, the device driver didn't explode on boot.
Now it's the AGP device driver that dies!

Damn it!
I've spent already almost one week around this and I don't have the Windows NT 2000 set up yet!

But next week, I'll keep on fighting with it.

Another thing that I do miss is that due my new functions I haven't had time to post here regularly; not that I don't have things to say, only the day still only has 24 hours and 1/3 has to be spent sleeping.....

But I hope that as things go on and start to stabilize, a little more, I'll have time to it.

Well, tomorrow it's my son's birthday, so today I have a lot of things to do and prepare for the event tomorrow, so I can't be here much longer.

Anyway, I wish a very good weekend to you all!
