You have one system with F11 and "others" where you can't install. Of course you've not said how many...but let's say it is 3. So, you've had a 25% success rate installing F11. I'm pretty sure the overall success rate is much greater than 25%. And I'm pretty sure plenty of folks out there have Pentium4's or Core2 Duo's. It also doesn't make much sense that you say think you have a boot block problem but talk about code supporting CD/DVD players. I don't see the relationship. In any event, my 2 older systems...Pentium 4 DIY systems...one with an ancient Liteon CD player, both with IDE drives installed and work just fine. -- Mulder: Eeenee meeeneee chili beanie, the spirits are about to speak..
