Just decided to post up a goof CD-RW/DVD firmware site that anyone should use if they want to unlock the region code of their DVD drives and so on.
it hasn't been updated for a while though. But MYstical, you should try using a DOS bootup disk or even a Windows 98/95 boot disk to update and crack your firmware.
And considering that your PC is an OEM...I think its possible that a chunk of your problems with XP are hard drive related, just a hunch, but you could have one of those crappy Fujitsu hard drives in that machine sense most OEM sellers I've seen use those because they are cheap to buy. And those Hard Drives aren't worth anything at all.
As for everyone completely having difficulties with XP....well....go with what you know works - simple as that. I personally have had no problems with my XP Pro system at all, and I don't think its too bad of an OS. But ####, we're talking computers here, nothing is ever perfect and "plug and play" when it comes to comptuers.
Just my thoughts...
