I took your drastic advice. I got the CD out rather than touching the 
bios. It did some strange things  early on in the boot but seems OK. It 
has come to;
MyTV login:
As I worked through the setup I tried to steer clear of  setting up any 
network stuff as I want this system to stand alone until I've got a lot 
of other thing done. If I need any file from the net I bring them in on 
another system and then move them across, hopefully, by flash card.
At one point, though, it did ask for a name for the local box, which I 
assigned 'MyTV', then I think it asked for a domain name which I 
assigned 'MartinNet'.
It also asked for a password. I never got one that it was happy with and 
it eventually came back with 'password failed' so I thought I was safe. 
Now, of course, it wants a 'login' and a 'password' and I have no idea 
what to do?
I assume I'll have to reboot from CD, but what to do then? I must be 
able to get to the file where these are stored and find out what it is 
looking for?

Peter
