Using Bootpart 2.5 RH Newbie (win2k+RH 7.3 on Dell Laptop )

Using Bootpart 2.5 RH Newbie (win2k+RH 7.3 on Dell Laptop )

Hi,

I was just wondering if someone could help me with Bootpart. I would
like to use the NT loader to load Linux but it doesn't seem to work. I
seem to be missing a step or something on my hard drive.

The following lists what boot part sees as my partitions

Physical number of disk 0 : 80
 0 : C:* type=7  (HPFS/NTFS), size= 13390146 KB, Lba Pos=63
 1 : C:  type=83  (Linux native), size= 48195 KB, Lba Pos=26780355
 2 : C:  type=83  (Linux native), size= 5711107 KB, Lba Pos=26876745
 3 : C:  type=f  (Win95 XInt 13 extended), size= 385560 KB, Lba
Pos=38298960
 4 : C:  type=82   (Linux swap), size= 385528 KB, Lba Pos=38299023

This is what I ran to create the boot file. Unfortunately it doesnt
work.

bootpart 1 c:\bootfile\bootlinux.bin Red Hat Linux 7.3.

I confirmed that the 47mb (#1) is my boot partiton. For what it was
worth, I also tried #2 but that didn't work either.

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jody

You did run "lilo" while in linux and placed it in the linux boot partition
before you ran "bootpart" in windows?

No I did not. When I installed RH I said to put LILO in the boot
partition rather than in MBR. I thought this was all i had to do? I
did check the liloconfig once in RH and it looked ok, however Im not
really sure what I'm looking for. What about the option to use LBA
when installing, should I try that? I checked it off and then it came
up with a * warning that said my machine may become un-bootable so
I ended up removing it and then continued the install.

My Linux boot partition is beyond the 2GB barrier is this an issue? My
C: ( as you can see in the boot part dump ) is 13GB of NTFS.

Thanks

The thing I was missing was turning on the LBA access when install RH.
After I did that, I didn't even have to rerun bootpart it just worked.
What a handy little util. And postcard ware to boot !!

Thanks for eveyone's help
