Re: Starting to get peeved !!

Hi Damian,
	you should check in the eprom configuration which is the
you can do that pressing stop+a, n (that stands for new command) and
then printenv.
To change the default in order to match your config use the command
with the appropriate parameter. On my config I've removed the /dev/sda3
whole partition
because I only run linux on it and does not make that much sense (for
me) to keep it.
