    Something just happened thats disturbing. I just got a router but it only came with a windoze setup cd (thanks linksys)

    So figuring that theres a pdf in there or maybe, for that matter, the mac will run the wizard, I put the cd in. My drive sounded like it was spinning extremely fast..it was loud..it was vibrating..making the whole macbook vibrate disconcertingly.

    It didn't sound like that when I used some mac installer cd's and I put a few other cd's in again to double check and they behaved rather quietly.

    What the heck is going on here? Why did the drive react so violently to th wondows cd? Well, besides the obvious that it was trying to throw up. :D

    Thanks

    It was probably confused 'cause it couldn't read the disc. Not all discs are written in the same format... Did it end up spitting the disc back out?
