    Hopefully you'll know what I'm talking about here, because otherwise I'm gonna feel really stupid. I am curious if you happen to know a way to solve the fact that Linux 7.2 doesn't support RAID controllers, or more accurately, when it might start to...

    Well, my boyfriend has a hard drive with a RAID array that isn't supported by 7.2 and he really wants to install (he tried Mandrake and ended up screwing something up to the point that he had to reinstall XP, which is his current primary OS) I guess you just didn't expect a question like that from me, eh?

    Heh. I'm not even sure I knew you had a brother...

    OTOH, ifyou'd been less preoccupied with brocolli at that event, you'd know that that is precisely what I was failing to do in the dining room all day long ...
