Not when you work at a supermarket =)  The only computer part I have that is
semi-up-to-date is my 16x CD burner, that does NOT work in Linux.

It boots like normal =)

I converted it to ReiserFS.  I just tarred everything in my home dir, then
copied it to another partition, then did mkreiserfs on it, and copied
everything back.  When I installed I had / formatted as ReiserFS, and I
converted my /home because it would still fsck if it got shut off wrong.
