Hey Techs...I am so grateful for this site as you have helped me out with a few problems. Now I have another one. I just installed a 500 gig SATA h/d in a Dell optiplex 745 (1 gig ram) and after correct hook up, I get "No Bootable Device Found" Tried to get into the bios to change to auto-detect, but it is password protected? I have heard that pulling the battery out for about an hour and re-installing it will clear that password problem. Is that correct? I also have the Dell Windows xp and the Dell vista re-installation disks as well as the driver disks (unopened). I will most likley go with the xp tho, but I was wondering if I could use either one of those? If not, I will probably install the newest Ubuntu. So, how do I go about doing all this and getting anything to work. I appreciate your input.

Funny thing about "The Blues", You can listen to them when your Happy, Sad, Angry, or just plain Blah. It's a non discriminating mood music.
