Glad to see you got it working (and with a thank you too )
Why did you make a 5GB main partition, though? If just the DMS stuff is there, you should have at least 32 GB of space to play with in linux, depending on how you had the DMS stuff setup. If its just for uLE, it only need a couple megs at most. My Linux HDD is dedicated to linux only, so its formatted HDA1 128MB swap HDA2 38GB ext2, after install I still have over 30GB free.
I can't use that HDD anymore, after a snafu with my network adapter, I killed my network adapter port, and had to replace the mainboard to even use a HDD anymore, and the network adapter is damaged so I can't swap it around anymore. BTW, 39001 apparently can be more then one version lol. I should have listened to deba5er about damaging my console from my IDE experiments, you cursed me deba5er!
