Yep. Does it happen a lot?

A lot, no. Now and then. About once a week, maybe less, maybe more, I
haven't counted. There is a forum dedicated to install, boot and login
problems, so we do see a lot more questions than you get in the mail lists.
Over 20 thousand questions in two years in this subforum alone.

Also, there are the people with EFI and/or GPT partitions...

Do they cause any issues? (the partitions, not the people). About a
year ago, I remember testing a WD 3Tb disk, GPT required, worked well
with lilo.


Searching on the subject line only (I can not search contents via nntp with
thunderbird), I find two from October:

And that's searching subject lines only; you know there are people that say
in the tittle as little as "does not work" and let you figure out the problem.
