Hi,
I've got 2 machines with 2.4 kernels and I was wondering if anyone knows why the output of "cat /proc/partitions" is different for the two, both are running ide disks off their motherboards, nothing fancy, but they seem to appear differently. The first shows:
Code:

which is what I'm used to but on the 2nd machine I get this horrible thing:
