There is a FAQ posted here weekly which explains what hacking is all about. It is NOT the lame cracker type stuff you describe above. Come back when you grow up. ObHack: I was installing a fan in my new DX4-100 yesterday, and the way the power connector was made, it wouldn't fit on the system power connector properly.
