    bad blocks?

    my SUSE 9.3 won't boot because i have some bad blocks on my HD. it's kind of old so i'm not really surprised. it says to try and write to those blocks and see if linux will remap them. i have no idea how to do that. my main concern at this point though is that i have some pics of my sons first B-day party on there and i have them erased from my digital camera. is there anyway i can retrieve them? i have windows on a different partition and everything works fine on it if that makes any difference. thanks for any help

    it may be possible to read from the disk using a live distro, therefore you may be able to recover your pics.

    Ok, this happens because linux does a memory consistancy test everytime it boots. You have the possibility of disabling this option.

    Thing is, I don't know how to do that... but i'm sure someone else here does. Anyway, I hope I was of some kind of assistance.
