    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.
