I keep getting a "DDO System Integrity error" on boot up.  I have a western digital 2850 hard drive.  Is there anyway I can restore use of the hard drive without formatting?  All I can access are the 2 floppy drives.

THe best thing to do, is find somebody with a working computer, hook your harddisk as a second disk in that computer, and try to run some rescue program's from his disk.

1st try going to the MBs CMOS/Bios and redetecting the HDD, some bioses will give you 3 setup options, try booting to HDD w/ each setting. (probably needs to be set in Normal/CHS mode, LBA & Large modes are used w/o DDO (Disk Drive Overlay software)).
2nd try booting to a floppy and then put in your overlay software disk and running it. Check for an Update feature and run that, it will hopefully re-initialize your DDO w/o lossing your data.
