[ale] morning RAID problems.

:)  I meant /dev/hde1 and /dev/hdf1

Dev		Boot	Start	End		Blocks	ID	System
/dev/hde1	*	1	116358	58644400+	83	Linux

/dev/hdf1	*	1	116358	58644400+	83	Linux

In actuality, /dev/hde is a new 60GB drive.  /dev/hdf1 is a 50 or 55 GB
drive (don't remember how it got that odd size but it's a few years old.)

/dev/hde and /dev/hdf?  not /dev/hde1 and /dev/hdf1 or another

what does a "fdisk -l /dev/hde" give you?

      These are MY OPINIONS ALONE.  I speak for no-one else.

Life is not a destination, it's a journey.
  Microsoft produces 15 car pileups on the highway.
    Don't stop traffic to stand and gawk at the tragedy.
