Any modern Linux can read Windows files - both FAT and NTFS. If there is anything special you have to do with ubuntu to mount and read your drives, I don't know what it is.

if you plugin 1 more harddisk which have priority than linux after installation, than you'll get this error. To avoid this problem try change the sequence of your harddisk (open your casing). The reason is:-
-Linux kernel quite sensitive on HDD, Partition.
-Once you change the partition table and haven't edit some configuration file, then it will happend.

Thanks all.

the little 27.5 gig cheetah crapped out on me. About time.

New HD config now. 4 disks. Almost ready to reload.

@Padma if I wanted to reload another distro what do you suggest? You too kstan

Also I'm in a computer shop as an IT (hardware tech) so I switch out parts and configuration quite
frequently. Is any on distro good for that type of work?

Since you work at IT shop, I suggest you to try ALL DISTRO.

Because there is no good or bad, just full fill difference demand. But base on market population, you can try this:-
1. Ubuntu
2. Fedora Core
3. Suse 10.1/SLED 10
4. Mandrake

In addition to what kstan said, I would recommend PCLinuxOS. It has been absolutely great for me.
