Thanks guys: I was absolutely sure I had done this, and that's why when the df -h command didn't show me the drives, I thought I needed another command. I went back, using the up-arrow, and discovered (what we'll call) a typo. So now things are looking right. I've continued on from section 4e, doing the stages thingie before doing the portage thingie. 'df -h' now says that hda3 has 73G (but who is quibbling) and 941M used. Thanks again for the help, I'm sure I'll be back again with another problem, but I'll be watching my typing more closely. Peter
