I just took the hard drives from one machine and installed them into another with a similar 500MHz CPU and mobo, but it hasn't worked out smoothly.

The first drive is 40Gb and seems fine, but the second, a 750Gb drive, has a partition that won't mount. In fact there is also a partition on the first drive that's not mounting. But linux loads.

How old is that mobo anyway? 750 GB might be just a bit too much for it.

Argh! Well, I don't really know anymore - probably 1998. So 10 years, +/- 2 years. But then, the other mobo was old too. Maybe just not quite as old. Should I be checking on a hardware compatibility list at Seagate?
