more evidence of my computer touch of death

So I mounted my old hdd and scavenged old emails and useful stuff and then repartitioned it, and then installed RedHat on it again. And again, Grub screwed me out of loading WinXP (the docs didn't mention not to load the bootstrap into the MBR). Now I guess I'll have to FIXMBR and see if I can start over again. On the upside, I found out I'd partitioned my original hdd and forgotten about one of them, effectively returning another 30Gb back to me. And even with almost completely new hardware on this install, I still don't have soundcard or printer support. And of course I did all this at midnight, forcing me to stay up till 3 and go to bed pissed off.
