My plan was simple: Buy a new drive, large enough to run Linux next to Windows, with a partition. At least as long as I still use some Windows software. Then purchase a copy of Linux so that I would have some documentation along with the software.
Well, I did just that. Bought a new 13.X gig Ultra DMA hardrive and a copy of Linux-Mandrake 6.5.
Partition worked fine. But... the software won't mount. I've since been told that the version of the kernel I purchased doesn't support the controller on my new drive. Wasted my money I guess. I've also been told that I need to wait for kernel 2.34, or at least a version that does support the controller on my drive.
Any ideas? I'd like to get away from Windows. But I sure hate to throw this new drive in the trash can.
