During instalation if you boot drive is connected to Promise SATA RAID controller you have to press F6 and provide floppy with drivers. But if you use drivers that came on CD or dowloaded an older version from Promise webiste during installation you might get Error 512 in the line 2335.
To resolve it make sure you use driver version 2.06.0.318 and when you copy it to floppy include all files.
Mac OS X, Canon CanoScan LiDE 600F
When trying to scan film for the first time, the software will try to calibrate, it will prompt to remove film first, but then it would fail to calibrate, because film was not removed, even though it was. Error 182.0.0
To resolve it I had to remove transparency adapter and place it back for 4-5 times, every time trying again, but eventually it worked out.
That is what canon recommends doing, they just hide this info really well

Mac OS X, 10.3.9 , Firefox 1.04
Very stangly, but all files and foders had dissappeared from desktop
It is still unclear the reason, but my current suspicion is on FireFox extension - File Archive.
There were the following simptoms. Quit Firefox, place file or folder on desktop. Start FireFox, close window, but not quit application. Move folder on the desktop or just open and close finder - and suddenly desktop is empty and only icons for hard drives left. I uninstalled that extension and since then I could not replicate the problem.
Windows XP Pro, Firefox 1.*
Profile switched to the default one. All the bookmarks and saved data seems lost.
