Hi, I meant I loaded the drivewire server as I usually do. I'm not sure what

Let me ask this: What text normally shows up in the log window of the 
drivewire server while loading virtual disks? I'm trying to remember and I 
don't think anything did before today, which was why I thought all these 
lines about checksums was very strange and indicitive of a problem.
