<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Well I found out what is causing the Celeron box to 
not run correctly and or install the OS right. I looked at the BIO's version and 
the version printed on the chip and their not the same. There is an extension 
added to the BIO's version. So that leaves me to believe that it was uploaded 
through ether email or as I suspect through a port attack and someone snuck it 
on the system to engage after turning the system off and later coming back to 
reuse it again. I did install Internet Security, but no software is perfect and 
I did not get back to the system in time to reset settings to protect the system 
better. I can't and will not lay blame. I will not stoup so low as to be an 
equal with someone else's lower level of mentality. <STRONG><U>( I am 
not&nbsp;stating that this email list is&nbsp;involved 
)</U></STRONG>&nbsp;&nbsp;Well now I have to flash the BIO's chip and reinstall 
the firmware by downloading it from Intel. Luckily none of the other hardware is 
damaged. Well at least I think it wasn't at least till I try to reinstall OS and 
do a probe and annuluses on the systems hardware.</FONT></DIV>
