A friend said to make sure the one harddrive was jmpr'd to master.  It
was jumperless so I tried that with all 3 possibilities of jumper setting
on the cd and that didn't help.  But he did advice me that it shoud be 
able to detect the cd if I only figure out what's wrong.

...and if Mark Martin lets me know that any sort of similar accident has
