I have my own computer support/repair business and I often get calls to come and troubleshoot a computer, most of the time it's a win98 computer due for a clean install so I end up spending a few hours there depending on how slow it is. Well not too long ago I got a call about "disk boot error", the person was just saying the error from the top of their head. I was imagining the hard drive crapping out, a file system corruption etc... so I was getting ready to tell them I can come and look at it and sell them a new drive if it really is caput. Thankfully I asked more questions, since it turned out there was a floppy in the drive and it was trying to boot off it. People most wonder how us tech support people can "fix" computers over the phone like that. :D
