The cpu (athlon t-bird/1200 with the standard fan) burned on the
dc(!) during the night. Either that or it got severly overheated
for whatever reason... Some new years eve... The boss better not
forget the *Sysadmin's Appreciation Day 2003*...

Anyway, I switched the mobo and cpu to another I had handy. This
mobo features an integrated lan-chip, and now I can ghost the dc.
Ie w/o depromoting it. I'm doing it right now. 

What gives? Will the image work should I need to ghost
(image-to-disk) the dc again??
