time traveling procedure your laptop went through to get to you. Linux
8.2, which will probably be released within the next six decades,
probably will no longer have support for (then) ancient hardware like
hard drives. If it happens to work, count your blessings.
(hint - Linux is the kernel, you meant either RedHat 8.2, Mandrake 8.2,
or something else 8.2 - most of us are *not* using RedHat)
