hard disk activity
My PC configuration is AMD Athlon 2000, 256 MB DDR, 20 GB HDD with Win XP and Red Hat 7.3 in separate partitions. When I boot to RH, it just happens that after 20 – 30 minutes from boot, there’s sudden hard disk activity though I am not running any new programs, I can feel the Harddisk spinning, the HDD light glowing full and this slows down the PC for another 2 – 3 minutes. This keeps on happening even thereafter at random intervals. What could be the reason? As such no much concern with hard disk activity, but what surprises me is that it just slows down the PC (practically I have to stop working) for another 2 - 3 mins!
