Editorial This article describes some of my annoyances in computing. If you had any problems reading this article, then skip this one. It will only be a waste of your time. There are a lot of annoying things in the wonderful world of computing. Of course, nothing is perfect, but that doesn't mean we are not allowed to complain and scream and throw our keyboards at our monitors when yet another irritation pops up.

Under Mac OS Classic I have never seen any problems with the ROM loading drivers from the actual disk, well, other than disks without drivers not working ;-)

But the bootloader is indeed not the biggest problem. That is the Windows 2000 boot code, that breaks if the Windows boot partition comes after any partition or disk that was added or removed. And Windows 2000 as a whole, as it breaks terribly when you remove any NTFS partition using Partition Magic.
