Hard drive light constantly on.

I have windows 98 and redhat 7.1 on two different hard drives in my
computer. windows 98 works fine but redhat 7.1 causes the hard drive light
to be on constantly and it runs very slowly. Anybody have any ideas?

                                                          Thanks

Interesting.  I have exactly the opposite situation.  In linux, the light
only comes on when the drive is accessed while in Win98 it stays on
continuously.  I just ignore it.
