Ahh goodie.... 
well there is really only one drive it could be... 
/dev/hda ...
/dev/hdb has only 2 partitions...one is mounted as /mnt/cdi and is about 700 MB
and is used for storing CD images...the other is /dev/hdb2
and is mounted as /usr/local ( I moved /usr/src into there and sym linked it 
to save more space also)

I think this is the one...sigh...maybe if I bring it to the warehouse I can 
get it upgraded to a pentium...
guess I will smbmount my NT home drive (if the sys admins had
any7 idea that I knew how to do that they would shit...)
and backup some of my more importnat data
