If you are referring to the rig in general, it has multiple drives. The drive in question is all a single partition, used only for storage.

I know that it is a pity that anyone be so dependent on easy GUI programs, but never the less, I am. I finally got DDS 11 installed, and getting rid of the active flag only took a couple of clicks. That is the way that I like things.

I usually run DDS 11 from a CD (ISO) rather than install. It eliminates the install issues.

Are you talking to yourself, or is that your way of complaining about a lack of credit given you? If the latter, then I will say that despite the fact that I didn't use your precise instructions, you did put me on the right track. Thanks.

The reason that you are confused, is because the post that I was replying to was deleted.
