I’m back!

And no one noticed I was missing in the first place.
I did a complete computer transplant from one case to another, and that took the better part of a weekend.
Today I was having problems out the wazoo!
First off, I got everything into the case and the damn thing didn’t want to boot.
Unplugged everything, no problem. Plug it all back in, nadda. Start with one drive at a time, no problem. Then it turns out that one drive that I have set on slave seems to require the master to be a CD-ROM?! Whatever, it works.
Then I’m installing Linux and I see that the drive that has my web stuff and the swap is the same drive. I wanted to change that but I hadn’t backed up the web stuff, so I just installed Linux just to backup the web stuff.
The install went well. I was greeted with the login screen, and I logged in.
Then the Kernal panicked, and then I panicked. What went wrong. Bad install, right, no problem.
Reinstall.
Login. Seems fine, no problems. OK, see if I can mount the network drive.
Kernal panic, I scream. Still a bad install? Sure, whatever.
Reinstall.
Logi….Kernal Panic!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
Something must be wrong.(I sais to myself). So I turn it off and examine the computer. Ever get the feeling you have no idea what you’re looking for? That’s what I did. Then I ripped it all apart and slapped it back together.
Reinstall.
Login.
Wait…..wait…..no panic……Just in time for the Grey Cup(Edmonton lost).
Now it’s all working properly. And I’ll never do it again ^_^

    I noticed. And yeah right you’ll never do it again – you’ll be ripping a system apart in mere moments. I know your kind.

    Funny you should say that. I completely re-installed the system just to make sure that I had the right libraries for the TV app. Figures. But it all works now ^_^
