Thank you for your help.

I fixed the problem.

The drive was mounted with ext2 filesystem and i was trying to format that with ext3 filesystem.

Thank you once again for your reply.

Galaxy_Stranger, where in Houston? (I am assuming TX.)

Have we ever seen you at an HLUG meeting?

Hi, Archtoad - nope, I'm not a member and haven't been able to make it out to see what all the fuss is about - I've just made it a point lately to be active on the interweb to kinda force myself to get exposure.

I live in the Galleria.

Well, we meet at HAL-PC (www.HAL-PC.org) right around the corner. The weekly workshop (as in informal) meets tonight from 6 - 9, followed by dinner at Biba's (One's a Meal) on W. Gray. The doors are card access (or minor hassle) after 6, so I even w/ a card I try to get there a little early.

If you want to exchange phone #'s, e-mail me.
