I really hope you are not right/ I heard that some harddrives have problems
with linux, and we (linux users) need to pass a parameter at GRUB or LILO, to
correct it. But as I am no expert, wanted to post here. I hope to hear a more
positive statement about my harddrive. It is 30GB by the way, not 60. Hope
that makes a difference.
