That's it.  Game over.  I am never going to be able to throw anything away.

I am trying to reinstall Windows XP Pro on KWF4, but it turns out that the disc for it is only an upgrade disc, so it so kindly asked me to insert the original Windows XP, Windows Millennium, etc etc disc to verify that I qualify for this upgrade.

I don't have the freakin original disc!

But I do have a copy of the Windows NT 3.51 disc.  Its been sitting in my parts box for 4 years.  I think I randomly pulled it out of a box of CDs my dad was throwing away in the midst of my trying-new-operating-systems frenzy back in high school.  And now it saved my butt.

I will never be able to throw anything away with a straight face again...
