i feel I should explain.  I didn't lose any data.  The reason I want to 
swap a hard drive out is because i got a bigger one from my father.  The 
OS/2 that I run is crammed on a 40 Meg hard drive, And I want to have 
more breathing room.  i still don't know what caused my computer to stop 
working, but i have been able to get it partially up.  (But I had to use 
a back up copy of my desktop which didn't include any of the internet 
applications.  So I am still resorting to telnet connection to read/reply 
to mail.  But it is very slow.  i very often overun My cursor.  Reading 
is easier, but writing is, as you see, still possible.
