My very question Conor - can we split the 100 quid? It's entirely
possible that an older laptop might have a hissy fit if presented with
a disk it doesn't like, where doesn't like could be one of a few things
e.g. size, status (master/slave/CS) ? Of course it could simply have
been dying, and the replacement hard disk was the final indignity.
