Full acknowledge. My HDs are formated with ext3. I used an USB HD device
of a friend, that was formated with FAT, I was allowed to reformat it,
but it was fine with Linux, so I didn't reformated it. In Germany a 160
Gig SATA is about 58,- CDN, 36,- EUR, it's better to have a lot of HDs,
than to use CDs, DVDs, DVDRAM. The only problem I've got is, that I'm
not able to set IDE and SATA to standby or sleep, Linux will start them
after a while, hdparm isn't fine for 64 Studio and Suse.

I didn't know that, I'll keep this in mind, because I might have to
install a Windows.
Anyway, for Mira there seems to be a reason, to have his problem solved
