well I figured it out . this is such a elementary problem and I should have known better .. the
ide cable was hooked up wrong.. a simple mistake I am sure that was made becasue I was going to fast
I also set the disk to cs and it boots like a champ now
it also is alot faster on boot even through the memory check and all .
I just want to thank all of you for throwing suggestions at me and be patient with me on this problem!! you are a real great group of helpers
and again THANK YOU !!! ALL
