Re: [vox] tivo... dead... =( help!



Muhahahaha...

I tried combining the original partition images with the old /var image
and everything now works.  It could be just a fluke that it started up...
but I'm not gonna find out 'cuz I'm keeping it on!!!

Still... I'm concerned the inaccessible blocks grew in size from 5 to 8...
I'm gonna try to get a new HD as soon as I get a chance and back up all I
can onto it.

Thanks y'all!  Thanks Lynn!

-Mark
