Re: mount USB drive at boot: fsck failure
Running "lshw" on the box shows the motherboard as a Dell 0UW457, v.
A03 with socket M2 and Nvidia GeForce 6150LE chipset. The BIOS
version is about a year old (12/09/2006, v. 1.1.4), so it could
probably use an upgrade.
Actually, if you have any tips on upgrading the BIOS from within
Linux, give me a shout. Most of Dell's "solutions" for BIOS upgrade
are convoluted or Windows-centric. I was playing around with the
libsmbios utilities the other day. Perhaps there is something in
there to help...

Interesting: when the USB drive is on, the box stalls during POST.
apparently some kind of deadlock, because when I power down the drive
POST completes immediately.
