    That might come in handy for me.

    Do you know if PLoP will survive a reformat? For example: If I'm booting Linux from the CD, reformat the old drive, and then attempt to install Linux onto the drive.

        Meh. Well, then PLoP is only good for limited usage then for what I do with older systems.
