Hi,

I've just installed FC6 so pretty new to it all. I noticed that my HDD light is going crazy right now for some reason. How can find out which program is accessing the drive??

type "top" in a terminal, big chance that you see entries like Beagle or Prelink of Makewhatis, those are indexing programs
