The fuckheads who write setup software and the manuals that tell you how to get stuff installed really need to learn how to fucking communicate with each other.
The manual for my ethernet card still refers to inserting discs 1, 2, and 3 into the A;\ drive, but the software is on CD.
There's no little slip of paper telling you that discs 1, 2, and 3 on the CD are located in the most bizarre directory names... I mean, who would think to look under "Images" for the preinstallation software? WTF?
I mean, if the preinstallation program was in the root directory when it was put on floppies, why can't it be put in the root directory on the CD? And why in the hell are there directories called, "Disc1," "Disc2," etc. which is a subdirectory of "Images?" I really don't understand that shit.

So now, my ethernet connection from the new computer to the old one is all fucked up. I'll probably have to take the entire network apart, remove the card from the old system, remove software, and start all over.

Thank the fuck you, damned software development team, and the fuck to you, too, manual updating team, for still refering to drive a:\, and for putting a fucking little paper that reads, "Substitute 'E:\Images\Disc1\Preinst1.exe' for 'A:\Preinst1.exe' if using a CD." You just made my day.

I'm too tired to deal with this anymore tonight. The computers will have to wait.
