General question - is it very common to have a hard drive fail? I've had a Compaq desktop since 1999, and the HD failed back in June. I then installed Fedora 5 on the replacement HD. It looks like the hard drive in my 6 year old laptop is now dying. Is this common?
I plan to get a new hard drive for the laptop now and put Fedora on it. I console myself with the thought that it's still cheaper than buying a Vista ready system. :rolleyes:
