hi folks,

I had earlier posted a strange incident with i/o buffer problem on my hard 
Its behaving stranger than fiction now and it is apparently sorted out now.
Yesterday when after 30 mounts my root partition went for checking fsck detected
i/o buffer errors in it and mounted it in read only state and a root shell came 
for me to proceed with my system to start up...

That almost brought my heart in my mouth ... I ran fsck again with -a -r -V 
so that I could correct errors myself and it asked me if I want to flush the 
which I did and haloa the filesystem mounted with errors fixed..
It made me more adventurous and I unmounted /home which as I had told earlier 
buffer i/o errors and when I ran the same fsck check on it even that corrected 
so all my filesystems are clean now....
So the moral for me is "Flush buffers"
I have mailed the Acer manufacturing plant for details what might be wrong
as soon as I get them I will mail it here..........

Its party time for me now without worrying about my hard disk......
"It seems its harder to trust a hard disk than it is to trust your girlfriend"
No pun intended :-D



   After the game both the pawn and king go to the same chessboard
