I missed the first post in this thread, but I have a story to tell...

The day that Sarge was released, I upgraded my Sarge installation and 
afterward, I got "DriveReady SeekComplete Error" on all consoles and I was 
also unable to delete files as one particular user.  I reinstalled Debian on 
the affected machine (using the Sarge Netinstall CD) and then upgraded the 
system to the latest Sarge and I had the same problem as before, after the 
upgrade.  It seems as though *something* happened the day that Sarge was 
released, something that made Debian Sarge not play nice with this computer.

I installed Xandros on the same machine and to this day have not seen the 
problem again.  My laptop has Debian Sarge installed but has not had any 
similar problems.
