Wht does my hard drive thrash while I'm working?
I'm running RH9.
Sometimes while I am using my computer, my hard drive starts running as if I had called up a program to load. I have done nothing that seems to require this much disk access (just browsing web or e-mail.)
I have 512MB RAM.
So I don't think my system is low on resources.
Could this be Linux "housekeeping" ? ( remindes me of another OS I have used and since given up on MS)
If so, what might it be doing?
How do I find out what is accessing my drive?
