Hola. Special thanks to triple6 for the best explanation
of 98 shutdown problems I've seen online in 1.5 years of
hunting. * humbled * Two questions
which I've never had anything close to a tangible yes or
no on. 1) I hit "load default settings' in bios about a year
ago and the next night saw my old, no thanks, Canon Printer
listed in printers. How did this happen = did windows add
this from Harddrive or Bios info??

2) A few months before that, while reformatting 5 month
old harddrive, I noticed that the sound card never needed
drivers, meaning windows found the drivers somewhere
during install,
which is okay, but where and how?? Were the drivers
to that crystal ISA sound card in bios or on harddrive?

If harddrive is the answer, then how does one truly
wipe a drive clean. F disk doesn't do all that some say
it does, no?

Getting there,
- M

Windows already had the drivers for the sound card on the install CD. The printer info was on the hard drive.
