Thanks David and Doug for the info.
But I'm not sure I agree that it is a hardware issue, with the greatest
of respect of course :-)
The machine I am using is a Compaq EVO D510 - I have 6 of these all running
app_rpt. They all installed fine.
This is the only one I had any issues installing the ACID setup on. This was
a reinstall as the HDD died and I fitted a new one and wanted to put app_rpt
Unless something has changed recently on the ACID distro?
Thanks in advance,
