linux killing my hard drives
Hello I bough the red hat bible to learn about linux. I first had problems with the first set of cd's. Now I have tried to install it one a 40gb western digital drive. The drive isn't even being recognized by the bios anymore. So I took a 14 gb hd out of another machine the drive had just been formated in a 2000 machine. I ran the install deleted and let it automatically create the partitions for the installation. It completed installation and now hangs every time I try to boot from the hard drive. When I use a linux boot disk I have that I made with one of the installations. I can boot up and see my cdrom's and floppy but no hd. Can anyone explain to me what might be happening?
