I just checked that, and even replaced the SATA cables on both drives.
I also moved them from SATA 1 & 2 to SATA 3 & 4 on the motherboard.
Same issues. I know that my OS was on /dev/sda (partitions sda1 ->
sda7). I am booted off of the Mythbuntu 8.10 LiveCD right now, and
wanted to do a check on the hard drives. It keeps telling me that
either I have to be root to do that or the device is busy. How can I
run fsck in this case to check the drives?
