device= ?

I am having the following troubles with suse 11…

Everything loads well and i can use suse.
After a while, days normally it will act like it there are disk fragments and obviously not work. I have replaced the disk but on my pc opensuse, ubuntu all do the same thing.

I know there is a command i used to have to enter at boot up to enable me to start a fresh install, but cant for the life of remember what it is…its something like :

Device=modules sata or pata

I do have a sata hd and if i remember you can have this permenantly added…but i never did, and wished i had known to add this command not just at the start but for good.


Try in a console the following:
