MUCH MUCH thanks for sticking out this marathon session!
I guess I can handle going through the other things - performance upgrade, software support, and software enhancement CD's.

Oh, should I verify I have four drive/partitions like I think? I'm still in registration Hades right now.

My computer shows A floppy, C, Dsk1_vol2 (D:), E, F, and G as CD.

A right click to Explore -
C - has lots of folders
Dsk1_vol2 (D:) - has what appears to be an empty Recycled
E - E:\ is not accessible. A device attached to the system is not functioning.
F - same as above
G is usable to read CD's
- - - - thoughts?

I'm switching off myself. Good to see you got it. Update your Internet Explorer first, the old version won't be able to handle MS's new scripting.

Wait, I went to next and it doesn't show a name in the Label box, kind of same question as about D. Change the long name to just D? Put E in the label for E drive, then F on F?
