I had been concidering using an Iomega Jaz drive (when they come out)
as the boot drive on my system...
Because i have this tendency to change operating systems every other
week or more... (involving messy reformattings/partitionings/and
backup & restores from floppies) I was thinking it would be possible
to use the Jaz drive so that whenever i want to change OS.. i could
just shutdown one OS and change the cartridge...
I was noticing on Iomega's slow homepage that the specs for the Jaz
said something about:
Average start/stop time 10/5 seconds
Ack!... Well anyway.. i am somewhat with exactly what that spec
i.e does it take 10 seconds for the drive to spin-up every time you
wanna access it? (which wouldnt work for running the os from) or is
that simply a 10 second wait on startup of the machine...?
say it aint so..?
