Is there no end to all this?

The random hardlocks that started appearing on my comp since Gutsy/Hardy have gotten worse almost with every new Ubuntu release. Not to mention the recent upgrade to Jaunty had made my DVD burner disappear from the system.

In the end, the only solution was to format and do a clean installation of the system. My DVD burner's back, so I can finally move stuff out again. So far so good on the overall system stability front. I've switched to using ext4 as my filesystem of choice on the root filesystem. If everything turns out fine, I'll see what I need to do to get my 2nd hard drive converted as well...
