ok so not a laptop, but close.
my new installation of a server is on a "johns toy" epia MII 600MHZ machine with an IDE flash module (hda1) and a 1Tb Seagate usb drive for storage. the main machine has no moving parts except for a 350Mb microdrive in the cf slot to be used as swap space to add to the 500Mb ram.
However the machine boots DSL and sees the cf drive as both HDE1 and also HDF1 and therefore the drive can be mounted twice. this wasnt a problem when I used the drive for storage (vfat), but now i have formatted swapspace on it, after booting, it is telling me I have 684Mb of swap spread over hde1 and hdf1. firstly this MUST be the beginning of problems with swap, but more to the point how can this be, and how can i resolve the issue.
many thanks for reading and many more for your thoughts.
