Unfortunately it *should* be read/write. It says so... I seem to get a
"File too big" error every time I attempt to write anything to it, although
df says the partition is at 66%.

If I reboot with a floppy and mount the hard disk partition by hand, I
am able to write to it. I am clueless as to what I can do or why the problem
occurs... Maybe some library is wrong? Any other ideas?

Thanks very much!
