    is it more typical for computer programmers to have multiple hard drives?

    I think it's just computer addicts really. And IMO programmers fall right smack at the top of that list.

    The reason I have multiple drives is for the largish amount of media I have. 5 seasons of The Simpsons, 3 seasons of Family Guy, 5 seasons of Futurama, 1 season Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, 1 season Sealab 2021, about 25 full-length movies (those are all DivX convs from DVDs I or my gf own), another good 20 gigs of other video miscellany, and something like 10 gigs of 192kbps/128kbps AAC audio (CD rips, and iTMS purchases).

    If I didn't have all that stuff I'd just have my 80gig SATA drive. As it is the SATA drive is partitioned for SuSE (30gig) and Windows XP (50gig). The WinXP partition has all of the OS on it, and all of my apps are installed there, plus thats where I keep my directory of programming stuff.

    If I could get MonoDevelop working in SuSE I'd be programming some C* there, and then I could take up a little more of the room I've afforded linux. I shouldn't have given it such a large chunk o' space since it can see my music (but not play it) and videos and anything else on my NTFS partitions.

    [Pardon the rambling, I'm bored this morning.]

    how do you mean linux can see but not play your music and video? I know that linux shouldn't write on ntfs partitions, but I'm playing my music normally from a ntfs partition...

    I can't find something for SuSE that will play an m4a audio file. It'll play mp3, but not AAC audio. And it does play video just fine (avi, mpg, wmv) etc.

    And SuSE has "experimental" write capabilities to an NTFS partition, but last time I tried that Windows wouldnt boot afterwards. Hehheh! :teufel8:

    Don't bother with NTFS writing in Linux for now.
    Have you tried XMMS? It seems to support AAC files. At least it has a IO plugin for it.

    Re: Curiosity: How many harddrives do you have?

    I have 3 drives. I use one 80GB as my primary drive with all my software. I have a second 250GB drive that is used exclusively for audio files. Finally I have an external 250GB drive to backup my audio files. The biggest frustration is making sure that the backup is current. Is there some way to synchronze these automatically?

    You'll need some backup software to do that. One of the better ones is Danz Retrospect Backup.

    Re: Curiosity: How many harddrives do you have?

    I have just added a 300GB Sata drive (7200 rpm) to my existing 2x80GB IDE drives. I plan to use it to hold all my multi-media (audio/video) files.
