Stop me if you’ve heard this one; consider this the formal heads-up!

This is a serious bug, as most affected users who install SP2 will assume
the system cannot be salvaged, and will wipe and rebuild from scratch.

Cari and I have both hit this issue, and found references to it elsewhere
in various forums etc.  We know it affects some systems based on Intel’s
865 and 875 chipsets, which have been bulk products for a while now.  We
suspect it only applies to Prescott generation processors.

Obviously I don’t have Prescott processors  🙂
