200 miles away and my car won't start!!

So here's part 1 of my issue: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3683890
I replaced the ignition coil the other day. Tonight I went to start my car to head home, and it just keeps turning over. Sometimes it'll start for a split second and then just die. Any ideas? I disconnected the MAF but no dice.
This has happened a few times. I think it happens when it rains, then later on it will start with no problems. Hopefully it starts in the morning, but any ideas if it doesn't?
Any and all help would be much appreciated!

I've got another 500, another 500 miles before we shut this engine down

take your distributer apart and dry the points and contacts with a hair dryer. also check their condition to see if they have been sparking inside there.
