Description of problem:
Ok, this is wierd. I boot Fedora on a Dell Inspiron. I've got an internal hard drive and also a PCMCIA Viper drive. The Viper is setup in fstabs and mounts just fine. I can read/write to it, but... when I run fdisk it can't open it! I can't format it, nothing. One day it was working fine, and the next, fdisk cant acess it. I know I changed something, but what? I'm logged in as root, sudo, blah blah. No good.
