I have just made a major goof and need help. I was trying to install
Linux onto a Fat 32 partition. I used the Fat32.i boot disk and the
umsdos.gz root disk. I tried to run setup and got the you must designate
a linux native drive error. I used fdisk and set my drive as dos 16>32Mb.
I didn't realize that this would*up my partition table. Now when I
boot with a win95 osr2 floppy and run fdisk it shows the drive as being
fat16>32M. I cannot boot from the c: anymore. I can boot using the linux
boot disks and read my hard drive, even the dos stuff. I need to know how
to tell the hard disk that it is actually a fat32 partition so I can boot
the machine. Linux fdisk does not have the option of specifying this
partition type. Win95 fdisk wants me to wipe out the partition before
changing. Any suggestions as to my options would be greatly appreciated.
