That nailed it- thanks to everyone for their help. And, even though I didn't need it for this particular instance, I'm definitely keeping the Parted Magic CD around for future use- looks like a perfect addition to my toolkit USB drive.

I knew I went to the right place. In a related issue, has anyone ever installed a linux distro on a HP notebook? If so, which one(s) play nicest? Linux Mint didn't seem to get on well w/this puppy.
