Hi Judah!

Pretty close ... I think I read earlier today that you can't have a space 
in that command. 

<shocking confession>
I don't 'fdisk' often. 

I KNOW! You wouldn't think it to look at me ... but it's true.

So I 'cheated' and surfed around for some instructions ... the ones I ended 
up stealing were pretty emphatic about not including any spaces in that 
<20 Hail Mary's and I'm outta here! />

>>Look for an old copy of Norton Disk Doctor. 

Oh wow! ... ;-) ... Cool! ... You got me good, dude ... I had 
*completely* forgotten about that!  You are right!  That was a 
pretty good utility.

(Dang! I wouldn't have guessed you were old enough to 'member that!)

Good call! 

(There ain't no way I'm gonna find a copy - but yeah - an excellent 
recommendation anyway!)
