well, u should get the boot option prior to checkdisk running, so you you should be able to get that choice of going into safe mode. if the windows splash screen comes up, you pressed F8 to late.

heh, I think so... course, depends on how far he go. maybe installing and now he needs certain inf/dll files for hardware thats not in the HAL and so its having a hardtime finding it. Remember good ol' 9x, instaling drivers and the good old "insert cd" and you did and then you had to manually path the damn thing out be cause it wasn't smart enough to know where to go.

low signal with the wireless bridge? could be many things. usually the bridge and wap (at least here at work) has to be almost in viewing distances. depends on wiring, shielding, etc..
