You must have missed that he DECREASED his root file system to do this. He can't do that- first, there's no guarantee that active data blocks are not in the area he stole from, and secondly the root still thinks it is just as big as it ever was- which is going to REALLY screw things up sooner or later if this hasn't already. -- Tony Lawrence (email@example.com) SCO/Linux articles, help, book reviews, tests, job listings and more :
