    Starting new files

    On startup Mandrake 10.1 non-interactive startup stops for a moment at :
    Starting other file systems, already mounted ok, Failed.
    Mandrake lloads KDE, and runs perfect.
    Fedora Core 3 was on this hard drive, I used Mandrake to auto-create new partitions, not having any troubles with Mandrake Community 10.1 yet.
    Thank you

    Are there partition belonging to amother OS (Win32) there on that disk?
    Actually I'd guess it's looking for a USB key or MP3 player or something. I used to get errors similar to that before I got plug and play to fully recognise the devices. Have you ever had anything like that plugged in at boot?

    Yes, I had my LaCie CD/R USB plugged in at a prevous startup. The LaCie didn't work, so I unplugged it with the system on. I'm used to a MAC Panther system so I pull plugs all the time! Thanks for the info.
