00:08<un_dave>hey guys, looking at software raid 5 for my new workstation, and was wondering how raid 5 expansion works.
00:08|-|Tombar [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
00:08<un_dave>i've been reading a little about it here:
00:09<un_dave>but they're using fedora, and i'd like to use debian
00:09<un_dave>is this supported in the latest version of etch ?
00:09|-|rjbase89_ [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
00:10<litage|w>un_dave: Etch now uses LVM2, i believe. regardless, LVM supports RAIDs 0,1,5,etc
00:11|-|bluntman225__ [] has joined #debian
00:11|-|bluntman225_ [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
00:12<un_dave>ok, so raid 5 would be supported, but how would i find out about the expansion of the raid array?
00:13<un_dave>i'd like to have the option of adding another drive down the line, without having to take the whole thing offline

00:15<litage|w>un_dave: you can expand it as much as you want (within reason, obviously). it's simply a matter of determining what the correct LVM command is
00:16<litage|w>un_dave: one of my friends has a 1.5TB RAID-5 that started out at 1TB
00:17<un_dave>ok, cool. so in theory, i'd set it up using lvm2 as a raid 5, then i could add a new drive using lvm2. somehow.
00:18<un_dave>without having to rebuild the whole array
00:18<un_dave>sounds like i need to do some reading about lvm2
00:18|-|kart_ [~kart_@] has joined #debian
00:19<litage|w>un_dave: exactly
00:19<litage|w>you can add and remove drives on the fly
00:20<un_dave>that sounds idea. i want to start off with 4 or 5 500gb drives, but i'd like to be able to expand it by dropping in another down the line, without having to worry about moving all the data off.
00:21<niru>I have built an iso image
00:21<litage|w>un_dave: if RAIDs didn't support that capability, they'd be pretty limited ;)
00:21<niru>I wnat to install the same iso image through 1 gb pen drive
00:21<niru>is it possible
00:21<niru>any help
00:21|-|dsa [] has quit [Quit: Ciao!]
00:22<un_dave>litage|w: i dont know anyone with 1.5tb spare who would let me borrow there space while i rebuilt!
00:23<un_dave>1.5tb isnt that impressive any more... but 1.5tb *spare*... now thats impressive.

00:42<DennisTheTiger>Running etch. I've just installed apache2.2-common via apt-get, however there is no /etc/apache2/apache2.conf on the filesystem. This comes off as significant because apt-file says it should be there in the package. I have done an apt-get --purge on the package, as well as a dpkg-reconfigure, to no avail. How, then, can one get this file out of the package?
00:43|-|bluntman225 [] has joined #debian
00:44<bluntman225>hey guys, i have an apache server running, listing on port 80...for some reason when i nmap it over the internet i get 80/tcp filtered http
00:44<bluntman225>i can access through my lan but not on the internet?
00:45<bluntman225>my router is configured to allow DMZ access to the server..

00:46<un_dave>firewall, etc
00:46<bluntman225>perhaps, but every other port is listening
00:46<bluntman225>i called my ISP and they say the only port they block is 25
00:46<bluntman225>how can i tell?
00:46<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: what's the site?

00:50<gsimmons>!tell DennisTheTiger -about confmiss
00:50<un_dave>bluntman225, there's not a setting in the apache config to limit access to internal ip's only ?
00:51<DennisTheTiger>Thanks gsimmons
00:51<bluntman225>un_dave: i thought i did it
00:51<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: your server isn't even responding to nmap. I'll bet it's iptables.
00:52<bluntman225>DennisTheTiger: oh sorry i took it off DMZ. Ill put it back on so you can scan it again, if you want
00:53<bluntman225>DennisTheTiger: you can try again
00:53<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: Yeah, gotta be able to see it to do diagnostics here. =^^=
00:54<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: ...still can't make it talk, what's up?
00:54<bluntman225>lol you must be scanning it right now
00:54<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: Your firewall or iptables aren't freaking out, are they?
00:54<bluntman225>well im using a fresh netinstall of debian, and my router is configued to let it be a DMZ so i doubt it
00:55<bluntman225>try again lol
00:56<bluntman225>oh yea use -P0 option
00:56<bluntman225>on nmap
00:56<un_dave>on unrelated note to raid 5 setups... i'm selecting the hardware for my new setup, is there a site somewhere that lists tried and true debian compatable hardware?

00:56<DennisTheTiger>gsimmons: How much can you tell me about the sites-{available,enabled} usage?
00:57<DennisTheTiger>gsimmons: ...never mind.
00:57<bluntman225>DennisTheTiger: im scanning right now it seems to be working, is it working on your end
00:57<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: Nope. Is the box behind a router/firewall?
00:58<bluntman225>yea its on a router
00:58<bluntman225>nmap gives me replys
00:58<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: Probably just a router misconfig. If you can put it physically on the DMZ (i.e., bypass the router entirely) and make it talk, then yeah, it's your router.
00:59<bluntman225>DennisTheTiger: So I should plug it directlly into the dsl modem then
00:59<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: Yeah.

01:02<bluntman225>PORT STATE SERVICE
01:02<bluntman225>25/tcp closed smtp
01:02<bluntman225>80/tcp filtered htt
01:02<bluntman225>interesting...whats the difference between closed and filtered... my ISP says that 25 is not avabiale to me, but that port 80 should be open
01:03|-|snowball_ [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
01:03<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: Ah, that may also explain it, perhaps your ISP - Bellsouth - is restricting traffic.
01:04<bluntman225>yea i just spend 2 hours on the phone with then, they said that port 80 should work ...they are like "We have people with security cams that use port 80 and it works just fine for them"
01:04<bluntman225>but they said port 25 is off-limits. that would explain why that is closed state and 80 filtered?
01:04<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: ..well, that sounds about right, then.
01:05<bluntman225>well if they say that 80 is open, why is it comeing as filtered
01:05<DennisTheTiger>As for why it's not responding, I can only assume it's your router.
01:05<niru>what is the best application to see my remote desktop
01:05<niru>gui way
01:06<DennisTheTiger>niru: A vnc client.
01:07<niru>DennisTheTiger, what is the package name

01:27<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: Some ISPs will restrict the use of the connection - basically, they block ports. Case in point, what they do here to port 25. Evidently, they're not blocking 80, just 25, but I still suspect your iptables config or your router.
01:27<bluntman225>DennisTheTiger: so the differnce being 25 is closed and 80 is just filtered
01:27<bluntman225>how can i check iptabels
01:28<DennisTheTiger>bluntman225: Yeah.

01:28|-|waseng [~waseng@] has joined #debian
01:28<tcsetattr>when nmap says "closed", what that means is it got a reset packet in response to its syn packet. this is how hosts are supposed to behave according to rfc793 when there is no process listening on the port.

01:29|-|comp07_ [~comp07@] has joined #debian
01:29|-|kart_ [~kart_@] has joined #debian
01:29<bluntman225>but on a regular install of debian does iptables usually filter things
01:29<tcsetattr>when nmap says "filtered", what that actually means is there was no response. This is caused by a rude firewall dropping the packet without sending the reset, or a host that is down and therefore unable to send the reset, or packet loss in between
01:30<tcsetattr>you run 'iptables -L -n' to see the current firewall rules.

01:33<bluntman225>tcsetattr: i see, and because my ISP says that port 25 is blocked, and nmap says it is "closed" then if port 80 were blocked by my isp i can assume it would also come back as "closed"
01:33<tcsetattr>"open/closed/filtered" is is not any kind of standard terminology. it's just some crap made up by lousy "firewall" vendors who want you to think that "closing" a port is something more complicated than just not running the program which listens on it.
01:34<tcsetattr>your ISP may be generating the reset packets for port 25, and letting the port 80 packets through to you, and your own firewall could be dropping them without generating a reset packet. or maybe some other similar combination...

01:43<tcsetattr>the tcptraceroute looks really suspicious
01:44<tcsetattr>going to, it gets a time-exceeded from (the same address) and then *'s out.

02:04<tcsetattr>that's what I've had all along
02:04<bluntman225>what does that mean
02:04<tcsetattr>except on port 25, I get a reset
02:04<tcsetattr>it really makes me think you have an iptables drop rule :)
02:05<tcsetattr>how about you run 'tcpdump -n port 25' while I do the tcptraceroute from here, and you tell me if anything shows up
02:05<bluntman225>well remeber that my ISP told me that port 25 is blocked
02:05<bluntman225>but i will do it k
02:05<bluntman225>leme apt get it i
02:06<tcsetattr>I'm not sure I believe what the outsourced phone slave told you from your ISP
02:06<tcsetattr>port 25 blocking outbound is common, but inbound too? does the phone slave even know the difference?

02:07|-|madroach [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
02:07<bluntman225>Why filter Port 25?
02:07<bluntman225>Port 25 filtering prevents spammers from sending waves of junk e-mail by preventing email from being sent through mail servers not .net supported. With Port 25 filtering, anyone logged into a access number or connected via a defined BellSouth IP Address can send e-mail through the .net mail servers only.

02:10|-|blarson [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
02:10<tcsetattr>yeah, is me. so I had no problem getting through to your 25. you are port-25-blocked on outgoing but not incoming
02:10<tcsetattr>although they could change that policy any day and block it both ways.
02:11<tcsetattr>now, go for tcpdump -n port 80
02:11<bluntman225>apperntly they dont want people running mailservers that use to send spam...
02:11<tcsetattr>they don't care about you running a server that receives spam though, as long as you can't send it back out
02:11<bluntman225>its running
02:12<bluntman225>so that means i can recicive mail on my mailserver
02:12|-|pmb [] has joined #debian
02:12<tcsetattr>got your 6 lines yet? or 3?
02:13<tcsetattr>all right then. could you run iptables -L -n and then iptables -t nat -L -n and iptables -t mangle -L -n
02:13<bluntman225>there we go
02:13<tcsetattr>that'll make sure we've seen _all_ of the iptables
02:13<tcsetattr>who goes where?
02:13<bluntman225>k im getting lots of responses
02:13<tcsetattr>is something on your machine making outgoing requests to port 80? because tcpdump will be showing those too.
02:14<bkw>When I compile with the Makefile I get Makefile:17: *** missing separator. Stop, why?
02:14<jm_>because your makefile has an error
02:14<tcsetattr>bkw, that usually means you have spaces where a tab should be.
02:14<bluntman225>02:13:36.098354 IP > . ack 474 win 8576
02:14<bluntman225>i guess thats my machines talking to each other
02:14<jm_>i.e. <tab>rm instead of <space>*rm
02:14<jm_>actually that's $(RM)
02:15<bluntman225>its all 192's
02:15<tcsetattr>I gave you 3 different iptables listing commands, how about it
02:16[~]tcsetattr supposes that the distinction between tab and space was lost in the friendly "pastebin", if not sooner
02:16<bluntman225>ok iptables -L -n
02:17<bluntman225>Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
02:17<bluntman225>target prot opt source destination
02:17<bluntman225>the rest are the same, with nothing besides target prot opt...
02:17<tcsetattr>slow down man...
02:17<bluntman225>use pastebin?
02:17<tcsetattr>then I don't know how we can blame the problem on the debian box.
02:18<bluntman225>yea they are all the same
02:18<bluntman225>is it possible that my apache is not listening to devices besides LAN?
02:18<tcsetattr>no, if it was just a matter of the server not listening I'd get reset packets
02:19<bluntman225>oh ok
02:19<tcsetattr>when my connection attempts go to your machine, the kernel will either send a syn-ack handshake response, or a reset. the only way it won't send one of those is if iptables tells it to drop the packet.
02:19|-|meandtheshell [~markus@] has joined #debian
02:19<tcsetattr>and since you didn't get anything on tcpdump, that proves the packet is getting lost on the way from me to you, not the other direction
02:20<tcsetattr>that pushes it back out to the DMZ forwarding thing being messed up, or your ISP blocking incoming port 80

07:42<gsimmons>niru: For the current stable release, you'd want <> instead.
07:44<gsimmons>niru: Also, it does say in section 4.4.1 to copy over either a netinst or businesscard ISO image, not a full CD image.
07:44<niru>gsimmons, whatever it may be ie sarge or etch boot.img.gz takes away 256 mb space and copying the iso image there is no splace
07:44<niru>gsimmons, 4.4.3 (businesscard, netinst or even a full CD image)
07:45|-|test1 [~test1@] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:45<niru>gsimmons, can i use the .gz only why is it needed to extract
07:45<gsimmons>niru: Well, use of a full CD image simply isn't possible if you're doing things "the easy way" (4.4.1). Prepare your stick using the method described in 4.4.2 instead.

09:01<azeem>what you told me was from debian_version
09:01<lupine_85>not that it's necessarily accurate
09:01<padski>odine, or grab the (68 days and not in testing) version in sid :-(
09:02<azeem>debian_version always says "lenny/sid" no matter whether it's fully testing, fully unstable, or a mix of both
09:02<lupine_85>sounds like it's not in testing for a reason

09:02<azeem>that's the source package
09:02<odine>that must of changed since i last used debian then... i grabbed the latest and greatest, and installed from the debian-installer... should be testing
09:02<padski>I got confused there for a mo
09:03<azeem>odine: an easy way to find out would be to actually check in /etc/apt/sources.list
09:03<odine>thanks for info though.. kinda figured there wasnt a binary avail... and ill use sources.list to lookup version from now on, i know i used to use debian_verison before because it didnt output like this

13:50<Avalith>So now ifup won't work because my system can't scan for available wireless networks and I've followed that tutorial exactly and it's gone without a hitch thus far.

13:52<tcsetattr>obviously you can't run iw* commands on a non-wireless interface
13:52<Avalith>I have a wireless interface available, that much I know from when I was running Windows on this machine before.

13:54<tcsetattr>if eth1 isn't it, then you can't scan with it!
13:54<Avalith>eth1 is my wireless interface.
13:55<Avalith>I know that for a fact from using wireless on Ubuntu.
13:55<Avalith>But I'd like to get Debian set up so that I can use wireless on it so I don't have to boot into Ubuntu every time I'm near a wireless network.

15:47<baskak>that's why i chose to update
15:47<dpkg>Your distribution may be based on Debian, but it is not Debian, and it unlikely lives up to Debian's standards (see <Debian policy>). Only Debian is supported on #debian. If your distribution has an IRC channel, you can use it instead. Even if your distribution has less people in its IRC channel, or doesn't have one, support for distributions other than Debian is offtopic on #debian.

19:12<NeXX>super fast probably, but why are you using the 2.4 kernel?

19:14<xayon>family, I'm using a 2.6 testing with xorg + fluxbox and it work REALLY fast.
19:14<lupine_85>2.4 means no udev, which could cause all sorts of interesting incompatibilities

19:28|-|lavaramano [~mphz@] has joined #debian
19:28<olli>oh, and where can i get the sources?
19:28<dpkg>from memory, xgl is the X server architecture layered on top of OpenGL and takes advantage of available accelerated 3D rendering hardware. It is designed to integrate well with the composite extension and performs best when a compositing manager is running. Ask me about "compiz" and "xgl-howto", or see see

19:29<bloodskin>in theory unmounting an ipod named BLOODSKIN'S would use this command, correct? "unmount media/BLOODSKIN'S"
19:30<lupine_85>bloodskin: yep
19:30<bloodskin>oh, forgot the initial /

19:32<lupine_85>why not -i ?
19:32<peter5>bloodskin: but really you just need to escape it as \' instead of '

19:34<xayon>Another thing, how can I create a file on every existing user's homedir ?
19:34<lupine_85>using dpkg -x means you won't end up with an initramfs. You need one of those.

19:37<family>lupine i have the kernel image so if i use dpkg its going to extract this kernel-image-2.4.25_i386.deb
19:37<lupine_85>xayon: you could parse /etc/passwd for a more robust method
19:37<family>and then remove the image its self
19:37|-|forest [] has joined #debian
19:38<family>and i believe that the initramfs is included in that package
19:38<lupine_85>something like 'for i in $(cat /etc/passwd | cut <some args>) <do some stuff>; fi
19:38<family>or image lol

19:39<lupine_85>I want my spleen back
19:39<family>okay so im going to use dpkg -i kernel-image-2.4 whatever
19:39<xayon>lupine_85, don't know if it normal but i've got a lot /home/whatever that dont exists on my /etc/passwd for example, festival's
19:40<family>now i need to get ahold of a 2.6 image
19:40<lupine_85>xayon: then for i in `ls /home` if you really wanty
19:41<lupine_85>for loops are good things
19:42<xayon>I know but, I'm not sure, you mentioned the passwd thing, and it seems interesting but I dont want to create a lot of not necessary things
19:43<lupine_85>only you can decide the right approach for your system
19:44<lupine_85>but /etc/passwd should list every user - and every HOME directory - on the system
19:44<lupine_85>if you were feeling posh, you'd use PAM to get them all for certain
19:45<family> im still confused on the -x to -i part see more here
19:45<xayon>lupine_85, I've forgotten to add some info, sorry, I'm doing it for copying to the home dir some desktop conf files...
19:45<family>maybe that makes more sence?
19:46<lupine_85>-x just pulls data.tar.gz from the .deb and extracts it. -i installs the .deb properly
19:47<lupine_85>that is the stupidest installation routine I've ever seen
19:47<lupine_85>xayon: any user that requires desktop config files will be listed in /etc/passwd
19:47<family>lol but its still correct right?
19:48<lupine_85>no, it's a terrible idea, and 4 years out of date
19:48<xayon>lupine_85, but also the ones that doesnt need them. and usually users that uses desktop have their homes in /home
19:48<lupine_85>xayon: so use `ls /home`
19:48<xayon>Lol... :P
19:49<family>lupine with the installation still work if i get the 2.6 image?
19:49<lupine_85>I have no way of knowing
19:50<lupine_85>retarded things can sometimes work, but that doesn't mean you should do them
19:50<lupine_85>I do know that dpkg -x will leave you without an initramfs, which is Bad with any stock kernel

22:31<Levon>rofl u caught me

22:32<NeXX>is there any shortcuts for like running a terminal or something like that?
22:32<NeXX>this fluxbox is so clean i cant even logout
22:32<Larks>NeXX: use left right and middle click untill you get a menyu
22:33<NeXX>i've got lots of menues but they are all about naming desktops and moving work spaces
22:33<Larks>NeXX: sometimes if has to configure itself
22:33<Larks>NeXX: right click -> Xshells -> Xterm
22:33<Larks>or.. right click -> exit to logout
22:34<Larks>but I think you have to have gdm installed to do that.
22:34<NeXX>my right click doesn't give me a list, just a box it looks like it should be a list but there is just "fluxbox" and then nothing under it
22:34<NeXX>i think its glitched

23:13<Larks>NeXX: if you want a trick setup, run vmware under debian with windows installed as the virtual machine.
23:13|-|jack_wyt_ [~jack@] has joined #debian
23:13<Larks>NeXX: I do that at work.
23:13<NeXX>im starting to seriously think about that tbh
23:13<NeXX>im very happy with how debian is running
23:14<Larks>NeXX: for me, windows runs faster under vmware, debian host, then installed natively.. its insane.
23:14<NeXX>it looks awsome, im just gonna have to do some media testing, make sure i can watch all my porn with out any problems
23:14<NeXX>really eh, thats wierd
23:14<NeXX>can you play games in windows that way?
23:14<NeXX>any problems in other words?
23:15<Larks>no you cannot play games
23:15<Larks>vmware does not support video acceleration
23:16<Larks>play games in linux :)
23:16<Larks>for videos.. in linux apt-get install w32codecs
23:16<NeXX>im not even going to hesitate on that one
23:17<NeXX>couldn't find it

23:18<Larks>the apt-cache search searched the cache for keywords codec
23:18<Larks>then I used the | (pipe) command to send those results to the grep program
23:19<Larks>of which found in those results what had w32 in them

23:19<NeXX>i see, and nothing happend out of that so nothing was found?
23:19<Larks>guess not

23:20<Larks>are you running etch?

23:20<dpkg>w32codecs is probably a non-free package that is not distributed by Debian due to legal issues. The package provides codecs for several multimedia formats, such as AVI, Realmedia, and Windows Media. To get w32codecs, ask me about <debian-multimedia>
23:20<NeXX>what is etch?
23:20|-|kart_ [~kart_@] has joined #debian
23:20<dpkg>Etch is the code name for the current stable Debian release, version 4.0, released on April 8th, 2007. Ask me about <install debian>. Please read the release notes at which also contain the upgrade procedure for upgrading from the previous version of debian stable
23:20<Larks>oh you need to add
23:20<Larks>edit you /etc/apt/sources.list
23:21<mehul>NeXX: you need to add "deb stable main" to your /etc/apt/sources.list file (without the quotes)
23:21<Larks>that works.
23:21<NeXX>ahh ok one sec
23:21<mehul>NeXX: then do --> apt-get update
23:21<mehul>and then try installing the way
23:22<mehul>Larks told you.
23:22<NeXX>in that file each entry has a deb-src link as well
23:23<NeXX>does this one not need that?

23:23<kop>What's the debian way to install iceweasel (firefox) plugins? I did a package search and didn't come up with any plugins.
23:23<NeXX>apt-get install firefox
23:23<NeXX>it will install iceweasel instead any ways
23:23<mehul>NeXX: you only need that if you plan on building from source
23:23<kop>mehul, Larks : (aptitude is now preferred over apt-get, because it keeps systems cleaner over time by removing unused automatically installed dependencies.)
23:24<kop>NeXX: I've got it installed, I want some plugings.
23:24|-|klys [admini@] has joined #debian
23:24<mehul>kop: what sort of plugins ?
23:24|-|Shizen [] has joined #debian
23:24<mehul>the way I do it is just download them and install them (not through aptitude)

23:25<kop>mehul: Dunno. Just had a nasty popup show up and didn't like it. Surely there's css plugins I want too. (I just don't know what they are.)
23:25<Shizen>howdy folks
23:25<mehul>night piper
23:25<kop>mehul: What happens when the browser updates?
23:25|-|rootweiller [] has left #debian []
23:25|-|ccpower [~MrShadow@] has left #debian []
23:25<mehul>kop: the browser updates and also searches for updates to your plugins.
23:25<NeXX>there we go w32codecs installed
23:26|-|ross154 [] has quit []
23:26<mehul>it informs you if you want to disable plugins that don't work with the upgraded version.
23:26<kop>mehul: I suppose that's ok. Does it do any checks to ensure it's got signed plugins?
23:27<mehul>kop: yeah it does check for them, but I haven't come across many that are signed by the authors.
23:27<kop>mehul: Well, I suppose that's as good as it gets.
23:27<mehul>kop: I use Tools -> Addon from the menu in Iceweasel to get to the plugins page
23:27|-|piper [] has left #debian [Konversation terminated!]
23:27<mehul>kop: for CSS, you want to get WebDeveloper
23:28<kop>mehul: Any recommendations for a popup blocker?
23:28<kop>mehul: Thanks. I knew there was something out there but had forgotten the details.
23:28<mehul>Web Developer 1.1.4 is what I've got.
23:28<NeXX>omg fuck windows
23:29<mehul>I just use the Iceweasel builtin settings for pop blocking. does a good job for the sites I want to go to.
23:29[~]NeXX is starting to see no reason at all to use windows
23:29<kop>NeXX: Too late. It's already done that to you. ;-)
23:29<mehul>NeXX: Welcome to the real world ! :)
23:29<kop>mehul: I thought I had that on, but still got a popup. I'll look.
23:30<NeXX>i feel...enlightend ^_^
23:30<kop>mehul: Yup, it's on and I still got a popup.

23:40<test1>is there anyone experienced with RAID controllers under linux ?
23:41<blarson>What do I put in hosts.allow/hosts.deny to not be parinoid about ssh but continue being parinoid about everything else?
23:41|-|bostero [pepox@] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
23:41<blarson>test1: I just use software raid. Much better than fake-raid that cheap "raid" controlers implement.
23:42|-|Across [~Xave@] has joined #debian
23:42<test1>but i need to use RAID controller because
23:42<Larks>test1: are you using hw raid or sw raid?

23:44<test1>i only need connecting 3 hard-disk concorrently 1-2 of them are IDE
23:45<test1>i bought a raid controller with VIA VT6421 chip but

23:55<kop>test1: Does the controller show up when you do a lspci?
23:56<kop>test1: You may as well do all your raid in software. That way if the controller breaks all your data does not go bye-bye until you find a compatible controller.
23:57<kop>test1: The other thing to note about ide drives is that the "cable select" jumper position is flakey. Always hard set the drive to either master or slave.
