I've never heard of problems with this kind of upgrade, but I really
doubt that it will help you. Especially since you've already tried
using the replacement drivers from SciTech, I think it's a pretty
safe bet that this is a hardware/bus issue rather than something
wrong in your software.

No, that's just the nature of usenet. It isn't by any means a
reliable communications medium: posts frequently get missing,
or propagate around the world in unpredictable ways. Depending
on your location, it is quite common to see answers to a post,
while the original message may not show up for a couple of days!

If this is really bothering you, subscribe to the djgpp mailing
list (there is info about this on http://www.delorie.com),
which is automatically mirrored both to and from the usenet 
group, but works a lot more reliably. DJ also has archives to
search or browse the messages on his site, which are a good
way to locate any parts of a thread that you know to be
missing...
