First off, Thanks to Brian and the other developers for creating 
gnewsense. It's a great idea.

This issue involves installing gnewsense-kde on a fujitsu-siemens amilo 
pro laptop. Note, gnewsense runs fine from USB on this laptop, 
including data persistence.

I get an installer error message. It fails claiming disk errors for swap 
and the root partitions. However the partitions have been manually 
reformatted and fsck says they are clean. This install was from CD.

Just to be sure it's not the HDD, when the installer is run from a USB 
flash drive it also reports the USB stick partitions to be bad, as well 
as the HDD ones. I also had Edubuntu and XP (cough -- it's not my 
laptop) both running fine from the HDD before.

As it happens, Puppy Linux does not recognise the SATA drive in this 
laptop at all in recent versions (2.1.x-3.x, while 2.0.x did). I wonder 
whether it's a SATA issue...but then why also complain about the USB 
flash partitions. It's all quite a mystery. Any ideas?
