Re: testing



Hmmm, I dunno... I had Windows on the main big partition, and the secondary,
smaller partition I planned on putting linux on it...

When I was in the Linux setup prog it said that my boot partition something
or other was corrupted and that I needed to 'initialize' it and that it'd
erase all the stuff...  I'm like ummm, no, I just finished fdisk/format/win
install, so I don't think I'm about to blow it all away when the
installation of Linux probably won't work anyway...

oh well... when it stalled it was... I don't know, doing something - yes, it
got passed lilo..  It didn't go blank or anything, it just stopped and did
nothing.. I could type and press enter, etc, but it had no effect...
