OK. I installed PF seperatly from AEP, due to the fact I have so much stuff on AEP (MAT, Battle over Europe, medal packs, etc) that I didn't want any conflicts. Then about an hour ago I said to myself 'Ya know what, I think I'll delete AEP and do a fresh install, it's been acting sort of wierd lately anyway'. So un-install, go to do a clean install, and realise that I have no idea where disk one of FB is. Do the whole treasure hunt through my house, to the point where I'm rechecking the places I've already looked, but to no avail.

I amaze myself at my own stupidity. Just thought I'd share this so no one else makes the same mistake.

Guess it's off to CompUSA tomorrow after work.

Oh no, I'm like, way beyond looking there. I'm at the checking under the sofa and in the refrigerator stage now.

Thanks though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Well, I do have this latex glove handy...Nah, I'll go get a new one tomorrow. Game that is, not dog or latex glove. Just to clarify, I REALLY don't have a supply of latex gloves in my house. Honest.

Mine is always in the jewel case, and the jewel case is always in the box. Why do you guys take them out?

The simple way to find things is to search everywhere get frantic, get frustrated and eventually give up.

The very next time you sit by the PC after giving up you will spot it straight away.

Works for me.
