also as i stated earlier. i can only run kubuntu, no windows.
but i did figure something out. my mom wanted to save a little money and save her cd and hard drives. they are both IDE so i bought a controller card. so instinctively i hooked up the HDDs to the mobos one IDE channel and the CDROMS in the controller card. well turns out its a RAID card so i though i was screwed and had to buy a new one but then (DUH) i realized ill just put the HDDs in the controller card cause thats what its for.
so after doing that, the CDROMs work and i pop in the WinXP disk... press any key etc. etc. i get to the point where you choose to install a copy, repair a copy or quit and it tells me theres NO HARD DRIVES!!! what the hell? im getting very confused from all of this.
