Thank you. It's good to see that this list is still like it used to be.

  The disk IS free of bad sectors. I boot my computer at home, and it
"booted" correctly. No problems were found, and rawrite didn't said any
error.

      My computer configuration is :

          PENTIUM 133
          48 Mb EDO RAM
          AHA 2940 SCSI Controller
          HD SCSI 2.1 GB
          CD IDE 8x

   I used to be a member of this list, now I'm just subscribed the
FreeBSD list of my country. It's suficient to me, I don't have enough
time to read all mails from both of lists, I send e-mails to this list
when they cannot answer my questions there. I don't think it's necessary
to be subscribed.... :)

Thanks,
