    Hi folks,

    The laptop is a Samsung R60 plus. I:

    1. Downloaded this: mods.myftp.org/Busybox/Samsung_R60+_Notebook-Samsung-09YI-DELL_SLIC21_DELL_SLP.rar
    2. Created a boot disk.
    3. Checked that that was working OK by booting up the samsung with it, it loaded into a Windows98 DOS environment.
    3. Copied the modified bios.rom file into a directory with CRISDISK, renamed it BIOS.WPH, and added the CRISDISK files to the boot disk by zip/unzipping them to it.
    4. Booted from the boot disk, and then ran phlash16, which ran, and updated the BIOS with the BIOS.WPH file. It beeped constantly whilst it was doing it, but it looked like it completed OK, and then restarted.

    It is now booting to the BIOS, at least, but that's about as far as I can go. I can get into the BIOS setup, which initially made me think all was well, but it won't boot say with a live CD in the drive (the CD drive will spin up, but the screen remains black), and it won't boot the boot disk anymore.

    Is this fixable, or am I screwed?
