Thanks, unitron! I had tried your 24008A image earlier but the only IDE drive I had lying around was an 80GB WD and as you mention in an earlier post your Maxtor is a bit bigger and the image doesn't fit. I tried the 140 image and I was glad to see when it went to "Just a few minutes more" It then went GSOD and said it could take three hours to sort out the problems but after 10 minutes or so it moved on. I'm running the guided setup now. Thanks again!
