It seems something I am going to need to be a bit long winded , p'rhaps
those w/ little tolerance should just pass on it <G>
started looking here ( SuSE's database) , w/ no joy. IT got me to this page

Itseems not to apply to a real scsi system.
But I am willing to be educated here. Hardware isn't my speciality.
Further , when I first installed 8.1 both drives worked as expected. "YOU
Update" yesterday , and *something* seems to have gone awry.
Not certain if this bit is useful for anyone, but , in the interest of
giving you guys all I have :
Got the command off some Suse Help page I was looking at something to be
done about GRUB, but to doesn't apply either

NOW this is fstab, which has undergone a change, as have my user privileges
, I can't edit various files easily any more, not even w/ sux Command.. tho
nothing has changed that I can SEE in various documents there.

as I said , there is nothing that shows in the user privs so I am sort of
spooked to really get in an rip anythig apart , willy nilly , as it were.
afterthought: Get Jah lost in da regge mon, and stroll along da beach!
