After further working on the problem, thinking I was headed in the wrong way.  What used to work (even the live cd) now doesn't.  I'm starting to think I have some sort of hardware problem.  Planning on getting an old p3-1G Dual chip board out of storage and seeing if it still works.  For now, it might replace an AMD Athalon X2 4200+, but maybe the difference in memory will make a difference. AMD onl had 2.25G, the Intel has 4G.

My Win7 install totally died, and the linux install was to files on win7, not their own partitions.  The install that went haywire was an upgrade to 9.04 (IIRC) and the live cd runs just fine, in addition to a usb installed external hard drive.  Planning on installing on its own drive (the right way)...

System still appears to be running 8.04. What I was wanting to know is if I install 10.04 from CD while maintaining the existing mount points if the system would install and maintain the existing filesystem/files, or would that just end up confusing everything else?  I really should have been keeping up with this project more, but as things moved on it got put on the back burner and now got moved back up front.
