OK. I'll keep that in mind. So you're saying under the BIOS / CMOS (same thing) menu, I might have to manually enter the CHS numbers?
You see? This is the beauty of a Mac: even as a power user, not only do I not have to know what CHS stands for, it would serve no purpose on my system even if I did know... because the OS just takes care of minutia like this at almost every turn. Amazing how long MS has been copying Apple's concepts and yet still have done such a horrible job at it in the end analysis (because the system is only marginally easier to use than earlier versions like 95 or 98).
