  5. Well ok this is what I did.Removed all HDDs.Set windows drive as primary.Mandriva drive as slave.Reinstalled mandriva.Its up and running.All the drives show up in /dev but i cant access the files on the back up drive.:( but the install went well. here is the fstab info beau@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/fstab /dev/hda1 / ext3 defaults 1 1 /dev/hda6 /home ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto umask=0,users,noauto,ro,exec 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hda5 swap swap defaults 0 0 this look better?
  6. good cause i was wondering what happend to it...i was like ehhhh ok....lol ty
  7. just let it run man.during my install it took like 10 mins for that screen to go away.Right where said too Starting HAL device.....really just let it run and see what happens.
  8. Ok Since icant over come my drive issues im going to reinstall XP and Mandriva.(see post unable to access 2nd hard drive) and im wondring how I should go about it.I m thinking this way is going to be the best.remove current mandriva hdd from IDE cable conected to cdrom.Make it slave to the future XP hdd.and attach 3rd drive to the cd rom.Is this good? Or any suggestions would be great because i need to access my back up drive to get to my ebooks and other neato files.Or another option might be (because i hate windows) would be to install linux with my 3rd HDD as slave the linux drive as master.So just gimme some feedback.And where would be the proper place to post a thank you note?
  9. thanx for all the gr8 replies.....neato....
  10. With Windows as we all know when you actually delete something its still there unless you use something like system mechanic to wipe the files totaly.So on Mandriva are there anytraces left of deleted files such as deleted /tmp files or removed files? If so how does one go about removing these traces?
