Subject: Re: HD Error...My baby won't boot!
From: Nick Brodich (nick_at_moirbrodich.com)

Hi Sophana:

    Is there any merit to replacing the hard drive at this point? If I am
already removing it, are there not better hard drives that can be installed?
Do you have any suggestions that I could look up on the internet and find
prices for?
