changed - permanently! You cannot go back. Is this really what you

The answer is no? I assume that you have X-Windows starting by
default (on a server?) and that the hardware detection is kicking in.
To configure disk drives etc. you will require EVMS and the
partitioning system needs to know about all of the devices. The best
advice for this would come from Mark Robinson - I will ping him,
however I know he is riding a Motorcycle at unmentionable speeds to
the very north of Scotland this weekend and so will probably not be
about until Tuesday.
