Thanks for the response.  Right, the story is not
quite like mine.

I'm thinking my problem may be because the hard drive
I am currently using was imaged from an image of my
old drive.  That image, in turn, was created from a
hard drive that I had used Partitition Magic a couple
of times to resize my Windows XP partition.  Perhaps
these two factors have created an odd issue.  Of
course the combination presents a slew of
possibilities of what may be causing the problem. 
I've accepted that, but what can I do to start investigating??
