karma?

Last night I got the system to boot with the new disk, and discovered that the original owner had about 4GB worth of Old Hindi MP3s - something my mom was thrilled to know. So for the next 5 hours, I had Md. Rafi and Lata Mangeshkar on the playlist.

It's not that I don't like them. But 5 hours?

Woke up today and the problem was back - it wouldn't startup with the 2nd disk. Spent the whole day trying to figure out what was wrong with the second hard disk, and figured that it was because of the 5GB NTFS partition in the front. Had to remove it, and carved out clean, reformatted partitions of Linux Native, Linux Swap.....

hard disk, hard times

Got a 2nd hard disk today. I'm not using the words "new hard disk" because it's not - it's a second hand 20GB Seagate U Type 5. I needed it badly - software needed for this semester is huge. Sadly, I can't seem to boot with the disk - I have to get to command prompt, and then do something, and only then can I get things working. weird.
