Is this still true if I use HDDriver 6 and boot from a non-512MB
partition because..
I am thinking about buying a SyJet, which is 1.3GB, for amongst other
things backing up my 720MB IDE. I don't really want to partition the
SyJet into the 9 partitions of the IDE because 18 drives is pushing
it a bit so I was thinking of just using 2 partions of 650MB, or even
just one 1.3GB one (two (sorry, too) many ones there :-)
