The Toshiba CD I bought off the internet I got for $17 on EBay because it didnt work, couldnt open the drawer.
When I tried opening the door, pushing the button just didnt result in anything even though you could hear it seek on boot up and the indicator light worked and the OS could find it. Just couldnt open it.
So I noticed a small hole near the button. Just about the diameter of a straightened paper clip. So I straightened a paper clip and pushed it in. POP the drawer came open and inside I found a NT Ver 4.0 installation CD. It apparently was jambed but it wasnt dammaged. It boots right up ready to install. Like finding the Hope diamond in a paper box the grocery store gave you for free. Well, maybe not that good, but definately worth $17 especialy since the drive works fine now.
Now the question is....do I want to install it? I have ME running on the I-O right now. Is NT any better? Is Win 95 any better? I dont have 98 or 2000. Space on the drive is not a concern as I have a 5 gig HD. I am only interested in stability and performance????
