You can bet on that. Compaqs seem to have many functions not in
hardware but in software in a hidden disk partition, including
disk partitioning software *eek*. My best bet so far is to find
the right "SmartStart" CD (how?) and go from there. Afterwards,
there are allegedly a number of Linux programs that can do
hardware diagnosis and such... but I didn't find those yet.

Good luck,
