    I think Elija may have been right about the HDD even though it is only about 1 year old. I think these small HDD in the Dell D420 are not so reliable. I have had to replace it twice so far.

    After running the above, I could not boot in to Mint even from the dvd. It kept erroring and went throught a bout of rebooting itself. Eventually, after a few hours, it booted into the desk top and I pressed the button for the complete reformat.

    Everything loaded and seems to be going smootly - at least for now.

    Thanks for the help and advice. I am afraid I did not understand what any of the codes above mean or do. With a certain paid for OS I know my way around a fair bit but I am at a complete loss here. Is there an idiots guide to Linux somewhere so I can start to learn a little?

    Thanks again.

    If I saw those messages, I would worry about trusting important data to the disk, if it seemed to be working after a rebuild I'd be happy enough to use it for test / learning though.

    When you come across something you are unsure about then use Google and forums to ask. If you don't mind an often dry read then man or info pages will help with specifics. For example in a terminal run
    Code:
    man ls
    or
    Code:
    info ls
    to learn more about the ls command than you thought you wanted to!

    People have become so used to Windows that they can forget they had to learn it too so I always say "Don't try and learn Linux". If you think about it, that is a huge task as it would be with Windows, MacOS or any other OS. Use it for what you want to do on a daily basis and you start to get the knowledge for free. That said, when you are ready to delve a bit deeper then LinuxCommand.org: Learn the Linux command line. Write shell scripts. and http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz are both very good.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    The Laptop has kicked the bucket again. Not sure if I can bother getting another HDD for it (that would be the 4th) and I suppose it could also be mobo or something else anyway. On the other hand, on ebay there are new 60gb HDDs being advertised at 32 so maybe it is worth one more go.

    But thanks for all the help and advice. We were impressed with Mint while the LT lasted and, my friend who copied me on his d420, also is happy.
