Evan,

It is looking to be a diskette or diskette drive problem... I wish you could 
just
stick a little hardrive in these things :-)

They are trying to find a backup diskette... If nothing else, I can walk them
through the "making" of a new one IF the diskette drive is not the problem !

Thanks,

Chuck
