Hi Ken,

Interesting - I now know that it's a database rebuild that i'm doing 
thats definately causing the issue, since. what i need to do is to 
increase the size of /tmp, or at least point /tmp to  - this is because 
of the size of the database, and that it's using all of the space on the 
drive. However it HAS to be done so i can start the board again! :(

I've tried using parted magic, however it doesnt really do whay i;ve 
been trying to do - it only comes up with the drive and bootloader - not 
any drives etc - i presume that it only looks at the overriding drives, 
not anything stored in them!
