Well... I just replaced the internal disk, and now the
IPC is up and running fine.

Another question though...

DOes anyone out there know of a company that buys old
disks and boards for these things?? I'm starting to
get a stockpile of broken disks and bad CPU boards
and whatnots.. I'm sure there must be some companys
out there that re-vamp them??

Anyway.. thanks to
