Some notebooks dump the contents of RAM, raw, to a certain portion of the
disk on certain APM modes.  You should check the docs for your system and
mark off any such portions of the disk with fdisk so you don't have a fs
that extends out into it.

Also, can you please configure Eudora to /not/ send HTML disguised as
