Can you post the output of:



   hdparm /dev/hda
   hdparm /dev/hdb
   hdparm /dev/hdc
   hdparm /dev/hdd
   hdparm /dev/hde
   hdparm /dev/hdf
   hdparm /dev/hdg

If any of the output says "no device" or something to that effect, don't
bother posting it.  IIRC, you have to run hdparm as root, even when you just
want to query the hardware.


The mathematics of physics has become ever more abstract, rather than more
complicated.  The mind of God appears to be abstract but not complicated.
He also appears to like group theory.  --  Tony Zee's "Fearful Symmetry"
