Huh.  Mine gets weird controller timeouts...

Oh!  Thanks!

I'll have to check that out...

None, but thanks for the tip!  How long are you having to wait after
inserting the disk?  I noticed that it seemed to choke on the disk
if it was in during the boot...  In fact, mine always seems to choke on
the LS-120 disks, but on the other hand, for all I know, mine's bad.

Not so bad...
