Finally got just about everything working. Got the USB hooked up and got on my lan. All of a sudden it locked up. (Win98 SE) Now on bootup it splashes the windows screen and goes to blue screen.....
Running a 20GB IBM drive, haven't touched the DOC yet. It sat bluescreen for about 10 minutes before I pulled the drive. Must be a corrupt display driver. The Win98 splash screen is fine then BLUE.
Ruh ro.... This might be bad. I removed the 20 gig and tried to get it to boot off of the DOC. I got the "preparing for the internet" logo screen, the progress bar came up and it made it about 15% and stopped.
OK... I feel like I'm talking to myself. What's new. I figured out that by re-enabling the IDE and disabling the USB and reinstalling the HDD the webplayer boots fine. On a re-boot I re-enabled USB and it booted fine again. Sure thought I was going to have to re-sys the drive. the USB came active and works great with my new D-Link USB hub/ethernet adapter. Seems to work fine in the unpowered mode. then I got brave. I plugged in my new optical wheel mouse and loaded the driver over the network. It would only accept the winNT driver but it seemss to be working fine. The WP is burning in now (not literally this time)
Lucubrate, you were right... the blue screen is the scan disk running. You cant "esc" out of it though. With 20GB you just have to wait a while until it's finished. PATIENCE (I hear it's a virtue).
What's really weird though is leaving either the usb mouse or the usb hub/ethernet adapter connected locks it up. I'm going to try using the external power for the hub next. Maybe it's pulling the USB ports too far down trying to power an external device. The power supply is 5 volts @ 5 amps. Should be enough. Hmmmmmmmmm
