Now, two bits of good news.  first, I took out the
unused IDE/RAID card and went for a re-install of MDK,
Mandrake 10 - remember it was only installing to hde
unlike SuSE 9.1 which went straight for hda as it
ought to :-)  Sure enough, MDK went for hda so there
was a conflict with the IDE/RAID BIOS onboard
methinks.  Oh, and the new CD -RW's are working fine,
no error messages apart from bad sig on
'binutils'....is this a significant file?

Oh all right three bits of good news then....I went
into USB View in MDK and hooked up the Concord
digicam.  It found the camera ok and gave a nice list
of all its technical spec's.  Digikam still will not
read however :-(((  I tried the nearest Concord device
but it didn't touch it.  My camera is the 4060AF.  I
have trawlled the net looking for anything on it Linux
related to no avail.  I did find a good site. I
believe - from what I have read - the manufacturers of
the Concord range don't seem to adhere to a set
standard.  Typical!  That's where the problem

I think I can also disable IDE channels 3 and 4 on the
new PC which should allow me to install MDK.  Which
would be very nice as that is the one with my printers
and scanner hooked up to it.
