Bah! :( The stupid machine is not playing ball:
- it won't boot a CDROM no matter what I try: 4 different CDROM drives
  (two IDE, two SCSI)
- hard disk errors
- stupid P.O.S. thing is gonna meet my sledgehammer soon

It's not a PICNIC error, and the Sidux CD boots fine on my two other
Pentium 4 machines. So I give up for now with this antiquated tech,
and will install Sidux on a newer machine instead.

As a result, I'm now too tired and demoralised to make it tonight :/

Hope to see you next month, with or without (bludgeoned) computer...

See you
