@67GTA : no problems, glad to help.
Another question: should I format a data partition for music files to ext2 or ext3?
And, finally, it has been suggested elsewhere that a data partition for video files be formatted to xfs. Is this right, and, if so, what is the difference between ext2 and 3 and xfs. Respond in layman's English please.
