"do not purchase ibm hard disks"2.0 starson
Summary: my 40gb drive broke last night after making that horrible noise. it wouldnt detect at startup. i was extrelemy angry becuase i hadnt backed up some of my recent work. this morning i tryed several more times, and it finally booted so i could make backups. lucky.... never again will i touch ANYTHING made by ibm. anyone with an ibm hard drive please back up your data!
