Yo chaps,

does it really matter whether it's on hda, hdb or hdz?

the squid man is lucky to have the option of the two hard drives. though i am only presuming, that if his install had gone "pear shaped", it wouldn't have mattered much, I managed to find a couple of "rescues" when I made a total balls up of my install.

And that was before I started picking your brains about sound snags Chad.

I should have thought that the squid man's dead rat 7.3 had also got some sort of rescue on disc. My mandy 8.2 even offers the option of reinstalling the window$ boot loader.

I suppose that the dead rat should install in a similar way to the mandy that I dual boot with xp. The only anomally I get is that, while I allowed about 12 gig for the mandy, it only used up about 4.5 gig of the allocated space and now I've got 2 odd partitions id'd as window$ FAT32 but with nothing on them and I'm just too tight to go out and pick up a copy of partition magic to correct it.


And as far as leaving the navy is concerned, the grass isn't always greener on the other side. And as Chad knows, I'm talking from experience.

The navy, irrespective of nationality, and trade, is money for old rope. If you know your job, you can keep your head down, mouth shut and bowels open! and carry on cashing the pay cheques, no questions asked. If you leave, you will end up having to really work for a living. Civilian employer types expect results and you haven't always got the clearly defined "pecking order" of the service.

After my experiences of coming out of the service, I would say, "do your time, get your pension and as much training/info out of the service as possible and only then join the real world, because then you have got something to fall back on if it should come to the point where you have got to tell a civvy boss were he/she can stick their shitty job"!!!


regards and large rum all round

Did you get the comp new? Somebody must have popped an ATA/66 controller card in it.

Lynch you are a good man bringing the topic back on topic.

Good points there John btw, and Hi hanzerik, cool to know who the military d00ds are on here.

As far as the controller card, and /dev/hde... Is a controller card another name for a RAID? Or is it simply something to sort of "step up" the ata? For example say I have a mobo that only uses ata33 at best, I could get a "controller card" to be able to use my drives to their ability at ata100 or whatever?

Cool

Yes,that's it.I had a comp with the 440bx chipset and ata/33.I installed a WD 10GB ata/66 hdd and put it on a Promise ATA/66 controller card that I installed in a PCI slot and voila! I had 4 ata/66 connections and 4 ata/33 connections.It had a 200W PSU so I didnt use all 8 controllers but a PSU upgrade would have made it quite usable.
