okay, i wanted to add a scsi hard drive to my computer, and my motherboard lacked the required hook-ups. so, based on recommendations from this site, i picked up this lil' goodie: http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=16-102-014&depa=1 i followed the instructions in the quick start guide exactly. i installed the card, started the compie, and when the "new hardware found" window came up, i had it install the drivers from the floppy disk that came with the card. then i turned off the computer, and hooked up my current ide hard drive to the connection on the card, and started it. it lists a few details, something like "master ide enabled", upon startup, then the screen goes black and the underline-cursor flashes forever. never gets any further than that. so, i have played with the boot order a little bit (unsuccessful). currently, the hard drive is hooked back up as it was, and i'm stuck. is the card defective? did i screw up? i really wanted this to work, and if i have to return it to newegg i need to do it in a few days, so please help. thanks, all.
