    So, I got my machine up and running and all is well!! The only problem I had was installing XP. Originally, I was trying to copy files w/o running smartdrv.exe so the machine would hang. So I re-booted and ran smartdrv.exe first then installed windows and everything is fine....except before XP boots, it asks which OS I want to install, XP or "old operating system" Apparently it thinks there is another OS installed. Is there anyway I can get rid of this, or do I have to reformat? I used NTFS on both system and audio drives

    the easy fix here is to open the boot.ini on the root of the os drive(notepad will work). make a backup before you do anything. then look at the [operating systems] section and remove the line referencing the old operating system. this should take care of the boot issue. not sure why your getting this though.

    thanks Dan! i'll give that a try later today. i think I'm getting it because the machine froze during the file copying process. So I re-botted and then did the install over. Perhaps I should have re-formatted.

    you're welcome,
    if that's the case the boot.ini fix should do it.
    btw that's a rockin' set up hope you both enjoy it.
