I've yet to learn how to tell the bootloader to boot from the primary
drive, so I just change the order of the drives in BIOS.

And there's the answer--I believe this drive is dead. I recall it
making noises some time ago, and it must've gone over the edge.
Fortunately, Atlanta has some good stores--I've been wanting to pop
down to the one by Tech for a while now, and this is as good an excuse
This brings me back to the modem question. I can type in the entries
from ppp.conf and ppp.log--or I suppose I could try to learn to write
to the FAT partition elsewhere on this drive, which I'm not unwilling
to do (shouldn't be hard, which is what I thought about the modem.)
Advice? And thanks again,
