Hi Dan, not sure what the original question was but... disks can, from time to time, move. So, its best for you to inspect /var/log/message after the disk is inserted and see what it is really called. On another note, I used installed the new toy called 'udev' for the 2.6 kernel. It provides a way to setup devices (like hard drives) to have the SAME name no matter where you put a disk. Look into that if you get a chance. -kev -- (__) (oo) /------\/ / | || * /\---/\ ~~ ~~ ...."Have you mooed today?"...
