Not sure what you mean by the selecting "default" thing... dont get to select anything.
In any case I think it's solved. I tried installing again with out my printer drivers and a different cd rom drive.
So all I can think of is, either the printer drivers were screwing something up or my old cd rom drive couldnt read some of the files properly for whatever reason and in turn something was corrupt after installation.
Seems to be working fine now other than my video drivers not functioning correctly. So thats my next big task. Havnt worked long on it yet, so maybe I'll get'em working or maybe you'll see another post by me :P
Until next time,
