It does not rain, it poors.....
I am having problems booting because I have at least three bad blocks on my
hdd. fsck keeps complaining and refuses to mark the disk clean! I believe
there is a bad144 program which will mark the bad blocks, but I am not sure
it works with the latest release, neither do I think it works with a 2.1GB
hdd, and I can not find it anywhere.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to plug the bad blocks so I can get
the machine up. At least then I can back the machine up over the net, at
the moment, I can not even do that.
For those who helped with the Java problem, thank you, I got 1.2.2 going
just before the hdd decided to go belly up.
Many thanks in advance,
