... my winxp keeps booting into classic style, and I am unable to change it back to winxp style.

For the rest, system is perfectly stable (9+ hours on Orthos, 3D2006 and aquamark)

I'm at a loss ...

If it was ever unstable while you were ironing things out it's possible a file was corrupted.

Well, that's the strange thing, lowering the FSB to 475 or below fixes the problem ... untill I go back to 500, then I'm back to the classic style.

Totally puzzled here. You'd think a system that can run a 3hr 5000 unit supcom session would be able to render the winxp interface.

EDIT: using a custom interface would be a good idea, I'm not that attached to the winxp interface anyway ;)

Prime stability or Orthos isn't bullet proof IMO. Your problem proves this.
