bad hard drive...??

    I have a PC with Win2K that is having several problems - it reboots
    randomly, it freezes up frequently, and every now and then it says
    that the network cable has been disconnected even when it hasn't.
    Is this the sign of a bad hard drive, or something else? I don't want
    to replace just the hard drive to find that the problems still
    persist. I can't imaging that it's several things that just so
    happened to all go bad at once.

    Sounds like either a bad power supply, or more likely, a bad motherboard.
    Try replacing the PS first.
