What brand of hard drive is the 7.2GB? You may have to
down load something to remvove the EZ-BIOS. Maxtor has
a utility for their drives. fdisk /mbr did not seem to
work when I had an EZ-BIOS to remove. I would
reinstall at this point as 5GB is a lot to waste. I
have only 1 8GB drive.


It's a Maxtor. The two folks who answered both recommended wiping the disk and reinstalling (sigh...). Well, at least it's not in production (or the faculty member didn't cry out WHERE'S MY MISSING 5 GIG?!)
