Wow...just breathing a sigh of relief...

First off, I was attempting to save some old drives somehow and then the HD that I use to run this decided to tell me that it could not run. Finally, after working with the BIOS, it worked!

Then, I was in Gnome partition editor and was looking through some stuff and inadvertently changed the setup on my external...and it would not boot on either Ubuntu OR Windoze. SOooo, went back in Gnome Partition Editor and was able to set it back to Fat32.

All I have to say now is, CRAP! Don't want to touch any more of these things for a while!

yikes. Fat32 is not the ideal filesystem to be using, but I suppose if it works... One upside is that it makes it easier to share between partitions. What exactly where you doing to the drives in the first place to make this happen?
