I am using a pretty old laptop (Compaq, Pentium, no CDROM). I believe  
the hard drive is standard IDE based and on primary master because it  
is "hda" in Debian linux. It would have other device names if it were  
SCSI or other, right?

I am wondering if "grub" (the boot loader) caused the problems. Both  
Matteo and I use grub. Will grub affect the partition table and  
mounting? Could you tell us the test environment that you run fileio  
on before, if you don't use grub or lilo?
