Hmm, never had windows on it,  however it worked fine with 11.04 , 
apart from getting MB and GB mixed up, i was just seeing if anyone else
had a simiular issues,
Ok it's clear that others have not had this issue

so i have

<--50gb / --> <---100 gb /home --> and < --10 gb swap -->  by adding the
50gb first then the 10gb swap at the end then putting the 100gb in the
middle.

all i need to do now is figure out why the wireless drivers didn't pull
in.  May boot  live session, to see if that works,  with wireless and if
it does it suggests i need to install some extra packages to control
wireless networking which is probably the case.

thanks

Paul
