not sure, it's ubuntu 5.10
> Try adding the following lines to /etc/modules:
the /etc/modules has ide-disk in there already, as well as ide-cd and
i've added ide and ide-mod, but no difference.
Some messages from the log that -may- mean something in relation to this ?

^^ i don't know what that is or if i should worry about it. Somebody
else also mentioned module-loading / auto-module-loading, so i'm
looking into it now as it didn't mean anything to me before...

so hda -is- found in that the system knows it exists...
and from that the previous message about modules doesn't seem over worrring. ?
before somebody mentions it, i have also checked the drives for
sanity, and all looks good (according to fsck)
also, if something failed to mount, due to there being no driver, or
any problem, i would have expected a message somewhere with the
reason....... ? (didn't find one)
thks for all the feedback
