Dead Disks

Bad weekend:
  • 40Gb in jupiter died (physical sector errors)
  • 40Gb spare has dud electronics (spins up, but nothing can talk to it)
  • main board in jupiter is similarly flakey (although in retrospect this might just be a side effect of the two 40Gb disks being no good… must check)
So the end result is that the AMD K6/2-350 is now jupiter, running rh9 on a 8Gb disk, and I'm recovering the music and photos off of the 20Gb disk so that I can put that in service as data storage.

We need a newer computer, though. Ideally with redundant disks (or at least two disks to spread the data around on).

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
