Yes, it's true... my PB140's HDD appears to have failed. When I turn it on it sits at the happy mac for about half an hour and then switches to a ? floppy. The HDD is then giving me something that sounds alot like the iomega Click-of-Death. Might there be any other solution? BTW... is there any way to remove stripped screws W/out drilling them out?

Don't give up quite yet. Try reformatting and reinstalling the os. The repeated clicking can mean that it's toast, but it can also mean that just part of the boot blocks got corrupted. That, you can fix by reformatting. Got nothing to lose!
If worse comes to worst, then check out eBay for sources of scsi PB drives. Sometimes you can find a reasonable deal.
