Found the problem.
I have been using quick format on the drive I was installing my Linux system.
I finally got smart enough to to use chkdsk /r on the drive.
Found over 82meg of bad blocks.
Reinstalled Debian Lenny using the /var /boot /home ...
partition option. Installed "normal" quota.
All works fine.
Later that night:
Well almost. All looked good untill I went to load ISPConfig2.
"Not enough disk space, need 510 meg"
So I did a /sbin/shutdown -r -F now
Many failures!!!-- Best Buy here I come.
This hard drive caused me to up my Linux learning curve.
Make the best of a bad situation. So it wasn't a total lose of my time.
