Subject: Re: Clip Zip question

Okay, I checked and you're right -- the bootloader is not loaded and, again
as you say, I can't get it loaded up through the RB utility.
Before I go back and reinstall things per your directions (thank you very
much for them) do I completely delete everything on it first?
When I received the clip zip, it came with a mini diskette and things were
installed on it from that disk. So, forgive the question, but should I leave
that alone, or reinstall that too?
Thank you very much for the help, this has driving me nuts.
Ross
