drop drive into box. realize afterwards that they probably need to be set to master and slave, thanks to Heather. set the little one, that's getting red hat installed on it, to slave. start the install. tell it to check for bad blocks. realize that that's going to take forever. restart install. get through install. have RH bitch about lilo not being on the master drive. growl. reboot to Windows to check LJ.

bed soon. i'll pop out the drives, rejumper them, restart the RH install on the small one, before i do.

this is actually kind of fun; i haven't mucked with my computer in awhile. :)

To me, it seems like the computer oriented task that I enjoy most is finishing a successful install with the setup and customization turning out just the way I wanted. It provides a real sense of accomplishment. Everything after that it is just boring, entropy type stuff like maintenance, patches, security updates, defgramenting, virus scanning, cleaning up prolific user-generated files, and lots of yelling at it when things don't work the way they are supposed to.

Nothing beats the joy of a completing fresh, smooth install.

Well, maybe pulling of some bizarre non-standard but cool configuration/tweak magic to impress your friends. :)

Once you're done with that, think you can figure out why the 40gb hdd I installed when Pepper was first built magically became a 15gb one? :)

Seriously, do you have any recollection of me changing hdds before I left CA? I'm sure you don't, but it can't hurt to ask.

I'm going crazy, I swear.
