Man, you passed within a half mile of my house.  I live close to the Blue Ridge 
Parkway.  Isn't that a beautiful drive?

If you're ever in this area again, CALL ME.  We're in the book (or email me and 
I'll send you the number.)  Would love to meet you and that beautiful and 
talented bride of yours....  Bill

Went thru the blue ridge mtns. last year...Forgot we had done that 
trip...thanks for reminding me...
We started at the very beginning of the trail and went to its very end. We were 
on our way from DC to Fla. and wanted to stay off the freeways as much as

Hi Carl and Eric,

I attempted to make Fred Langa's bootable CD of XP, patched with SP2.  About 
every other step would hang on me with some message or other.  I figured out a 
few workarounds but finally gave up on it.  It sounded like a good idea, I just 
couldn't get it to work on my computer.

And yes, Eric, its a beautiful world we live in.  After Hurricanes Frances and 
Ivan blew thru here to clear the air, you should see the views from the Blue 
Ridge Parkway in the mountains of North Carolina and Virginia.

Bill (not that one, another one)

Hi Carl,

When Bill kindly sent me a new CD containing SP2, it took me just 20 minutes to 
install on each of four computers, and it installed perfectly, no problems 
encountered. The closest thing to a problem was a "false" error message from 
Nero 6 stating it does not recognise the OS and cannot work. But I ignored the 
message and went ahead and Nero burned a data CD for me perfectly! I have since 
downloaded the latest Nero 6, which no longer has the false error report.

Guess what - it's Spring here, the grass is green, the trees are budding, the 
birds are singing... we did have a cold day on Sunday but it has warmed up 
again - what a beautiful world we live in!!

Step 14 will get you.    Funny, this man  Fred Langa  says to make your own 
boot cd for Windows xp SP2 and it'll save an hour of time when you need to 
reinstall SP2;  but it'll take 2 days to make.    And for lay people like me 
that does not know that much about software, we'll make a mistake along the way 
and the darn cd will not work when needed.    To make that cd one has to delete 
a file and then add it back from a different source.   I can just see it now;   
my system crashed and I restore the system back to factory settings and then 
update it with this new type bootable cd and ............... opps, it doesn't 
work.    Now what.    I've wasted 2 days making a useless cd.
