Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ive noticed the drive heads are clciking slightly also - this should only happed after 3 or 4 years - its a Caviar at 7200 with 2mb cache - its fast but it shouldnt be clicking yet - it'll have to go back
I came across this whith several disks, some have even an extra jumper
on it . That's meant for cap limiting. If your bios doesn't detect the right
geometry, you can 'fool' it by using this jumper. You 'll loose some gigabyte
though. Read the leaflet that came with the drive or the sticker thats on
But if you want all, that you have paid for, then you might have to upgrade
your bios. Be carefull though, you can fry it as well.
You've either got a really old mobo BIOS or you've got the drive jumpered for 32 Gb clip. The other 1/2 gig of course missing due to the linear vs real 1000 != 1024 problem, plus more eaten away for inodes.
And... I just read the above post which says the same thing, hrmmm.
Ive changed the jumper from Master to Cable Select and I've now got the right amount.
I was under the impression that Typically you jumpered it to master when installing it on the primary master IDE channel - slave when putting it on the primary slave channel and Cable Select when you've got an Old computer with a funny propriarty setup which needs you to leave it to the computer to assign what it wants via cable select.
