  1. http://www.speakeasy.org/~xyzzy/scsi.html <- SCSI-IDLE is a simple tool to let you spin down/spin up/spin down on idle- your annoying scsi-drive. WARNING: Before you use this program, be aware of the risks. Have a google around. Old disks in particular, and disks that have been running 24/7 for longer periods can be dangerous to park this way, according to some forum entries.

TV output will work just fine when enabled. I start into X without problems what so ever.
