Thanks very much.
That did indeed work,
or at least the partition is now recognised as ext3.
I'm presently running "e2fsck -y" on this partition,
and it has found approximately infinity errors.
Now when I boot the system,
it says it fails to find innumerable library files
I guess in the end I shall have to re-install ...
I might have mentioned that Windows-2000 on /dev/hda1
also failed to start, though in an incomprehensible way
(a blue screen full of data I did not understand).
I know this sounds like a bad disk,
but I have a feeling it is something worse.
I guess I'll have to try changing the disk,
but I really hate taking the Picturebook to pieces.
All the Sony advice files show Japanese girls
with long thin fingers undoing things I can't even reach ...
