Hi all,
       Damn, now can somebody edit the wiki link please it so it doesn't
look so bad & also put the [:FsckHowto:fsck howto] where it is required. The
reason I'm asking is as I'm simply new to this way of doing things. What I
am doing is usually looking at some documentation prepared by somebody, try
to see what they did & then update the wiki as I can. Thanx for your
guidance Robert :)
