    Are your laptop and desktop ever connected on the same LAN or together through a cross-over cable?

    Have you installed anything on either of these 2 pc's recently?

    Have you installed Caldera DOS on your pc's?

    I just googled Caldera DOS and it's a DOS operating system that can be used to share a computers resources with other computers on a DOS network. If you haven't installed Caldera then it could be that a virus has installed it for you and is up to no good!

    Wow - this is antique stuff! :biggrin

    First off - Raffaz has the best respnse.

    Second - what have you installed recently?

    Finaly - a bit of info about the OSes involved never hurt.

    just a thought but was there any thing in the cd drive for the desktop to boot from before you changed the boot options, as i have a disk i use when all else fails called ultimate boot cd and most of the apps on there use caldera dos or linux to run
