Somewhere in all of that downgrading and upgrading my menu.lst decided to
change the defualt to zero (-rt) rather than whatever it was when -generic

which of the four downgrades fixed the problem and at the moment I don't

One of these days I'll try reinstalling the upgrades...or just wait until

Thanks for all the help.
