Something sucks in redmond (PITA continues to be a pain)

I spent 3.5 hours last night installing and re-installing Windows 2000. Another few hours this morning/afternoon. Every time I installed any of the video drivers for the Leadtek card (Leadtek's or nVidia's) I wound up with a machine that couldn't display anything (even in safe mode) because the driver would always load and corrupt the system. The last install I just didn't install a graphics driver, but the IE 6 install has been corrupted so that it crashes every few minutes.

I'm seriously considering seeing whether I can get the MSToolkit compiler chain running under WINE just to avoid the frustration of dealing with Windows. Still haven't even started on the Toolkit tool-chain, btw, it's taken all this time just to get a (somewhat) working Windows install.
