Dying Falcon...

A few of you might remember my frustrated mail re. my "dying" Falcon
last week. Well, I believe I've located the fault; a faulty
IDE-cable... A couple of wires was loose and short-cirtuited from time
to time. This resulted in weird noises followed by a dead Falcon. If I
moved the tower around a bit things usually started up again.

I've now replaced the cable and things seems to work. The really
embarassing thing here is that this cable might have destroyed two
brand-new 1280Mb disks, which my dealer replaced without questions...
