Regarding my "drive removal" post. As I continued to research today, I "discovered" my entry into the world of Linux. I was shocked (embarrassed) to find when I created the partitions, unknown to me (til now evidently), a New Volume was created. The thread where I made today's discovery can be viewed over at the Kubuntu forum (see link below). So to those who viewed the thread and to those who were helping me, I give you my sincerest Thanks and apology. You are all encouraged to laugh along with me. Thanks folks.
