How to skip hd at boot up? Also, sound question
Hey, I installed Suse 9.1 personal not to long ago and whenever it boots, it hangs for a while on my windows partitions. It stops then says resetting drive, it takes a bit of time and is annoying. Is there a way to bypass this with a hotkey or something?

Also, my sound seems to not be working now. When i check the hardware it shows up fine, but it won't play anything. I just get a feedback sound when i turn the volume up. Any suggestions?

What kind of sound card?

Also, have you run 'alsaconf' from the command line?

It is a built in Nforce2. I have an Asus a7n8 deluxe Mobo and it is built in. No i have not tried that command. I am brand new to the linux environment and didn't even know where to start. Wasn't sure how to reload drivers etc.

welcome to linux :-) Asus mobo`s are pretty good with linux compatibility/vice versa and nforce as u know is nvidia if u go their website they have drivers for their hardware. Try having a look there and following the readme file which will come with their driver download, post back if u have any problems with it.
alsaconf as Cheeseboy says is a command to configure ur soundcard

Add the noauto option to the windows drives /etc/fstab entry. You can mount them manaully after the OS is running.

Also, if you run the alsaconfig program and you can hear the sample sound, but can't hear things as a regular user, make sure that you are a member of the 'audio' group.
