 I am running XP pro. My machine would reboot as soon as I put a disk
in my DVD rom drive. In fact if I did not eject the disk from the DVD
it would just keep rebooting while not even getting back into XP. The
DVD just keeps running while the machine is booting.  Also, when I had
my DVD-rw hooked up to the same IDE cable as this DVD rom it would run
continually.  I picked up a small external enclosure and put the DVD
rw in there. Running it off USB now.  Problem solved.I have a bad
feeling my MoBoard has bit the dust although not ruling out a problem
with XP.  I don't even know where to begin since i am getting no error

It may just be the cable.  Test it by buying another EIDE (or SATA,
depending on the connector) and testing it out.
