I thank you kindly for both posts. They have been most informative. My question is regarding the first post (see above for context of question). My HD is 80GB. I assume this is large and therefore I must have the new intallation of XFS with seperate /boot at the begining of the drive. Why is this? What is the limitation GRUB and the BIOS suffer from?
Thanks much indeed.
