You are welcome and as you can see even we miss things at time.
A second set of eyes is always good to have at times.
You need to get into the bios?

i was following the haynes manual. went into bios to set the time, enable usb for keyboard and mouse and set the cddrive as the boot drive as its set to floppy still automatically (seems silly as floppy is not used much anymore to my knowledge)
windows is up and running now. :) thanx for all the help. guna be adding all the software over the next few days.
thanx :)
