Did the same thing (right click -> properties -> tools -> check disk)
no matter what boxes I check, it doesn't even say "Phase x", while it does
say that when scanning any internal partition (win xp home by the way).
Maybe I should look at a pc with win98 on it, like John says. Or maybe I
should just reboot my pc, have done that 25 days ago and since then
hibernated only. Perhaps the system doesn't like that :)
Not that important anyway, at least now I know it _should_ work.
