I've got the following problem:

I have a disk (16 heads, 63 sectors, 25288 cyl) which is partitionned :

(with fdisk :)

Device        Boot    Start            End                Blocks
id            System                                   Remarks
/dev/hda1    *          1                  18117            9130936+       c
Win95FAT32 (LBA)              This partition is OK (contains Win98 OS)
/dev/hda2                1025            5088             2048251         f
Win95Ext'd (LBA)                This is the partition I want to read, but I
cannot

access anymore
/dev/hda3                22182         24967            1404144        83
Linux                                       This partition is OK (contains
Linux Redhat 6.0
/dev/hda4                24968         25288            131544           82
Linux Swap                            This partition is OK
/dev/hda5                2160734    715730          1419201560+   6
FAT16                                    ???

First is the Linux OS put on the computer. Win98 is put on afterwards. I
want to save the information on hda2 (about 2 GB)

Who can give me help to resolve this problem.

Note that hda2 is the extended partition, not the FAT partition.

To provide more information you can get Findpart at

http://inet.uni2.dk/~svolaf/utilities.htm

do in a Windows DOS box:

findpart all fp.txt

and post the content from fp.txt.
