Hi joshua:

here is the latest System config utlity on floppies; and can also use the one from smart start 5.50 ; with manual install.

Compaq System Configuration Utility
version 2.58 A (17 Jan 02)
http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/13227.html

Don't know if that is all you need.

Tarek.

Joshua:

Have you tried different diskettes? You may just have a bad one.

Alternatively, you can pull a floppy drive from a workstation and plug that in... if the disk boots, you know you have bad hardware.

Let us know what you find? -john
Enjoy!
