MInt and AM2 motherboards

LOL Yeah I noticed the lack of tech knowledge from the BBC. I also saw Bill Gates laugh when the presenter asked about competition from 'myspace, go...

I would rather format the drive to EXT3 or reiserfs, I used fat 32 because I had the command for /etc/fstab to get it working.

I am very willing to change the drive to a Linux format !
