Yay! And Aaarrgh!

The yaaay part: I now have a working desktop PC again, with a shiny re-done Windows XP installation sitting on it, ready to perform.

The aarrrgh part: I apparently SUCK horribly at wrangling my various CDs. I cannot for the life of me find the CD for my main linksys router. I found the one for the wireless access port I have attached to it, but that apparently doesn't do jack by itself. I've found CDs for my scanner, for a printer, hell, even for stuff I haven't used for years and will almost definitely never use again, but no linksys router disc. Gaaaah!

What really sucks is that my router and network are obviously still working fine and dandy, I just can't figure out how to get my PC onto it without that disc! For the record, my cable modem goes into my main linksys router, and both my wireless access port and my PC are plugged into that, while my other stuff (notebook, 360, Wii) run off the wireless.

Blah. I want my connection so I can re-download stuff and get back to semi-normality! (Plus.. want sleeeep. So if anyone replies and asks something and I don't respond for, like, hours figure I may have fallen asleep, though I'm gonna try to stay awake a little longer...)
