since i'm 99% sure that mitch wrote that page, let me be the first to disagree. :-) i believe that everything he's said is completely spot on. i confess i wasn't conscious of the partition vs. erase block alignment issue until a couple of months ago when i first heard mitch mention it, but i'm absolutely sure the effect is real. paul =--------------------- paul fox, p...@laptop.org _______________________________________________ Devel mailing list Devel@lists.laptop.org http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/devel
