Linux + W95 --> FIPS Unknown Filesystem: 0Bh

Linux + W95 --> FIPS Unknown Filesystem: 0Bh

Post by Flavio Molinell » Fri, 20 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I wanted to install Linux (Slackware 3.0) on a Pentium w/ W95-OEM
already installed. So went to the install/fips directory, made FIPS
bootdisk and tried to reduce existing primary partition (1,2 GB) in
order to make Linux Root and Swap ones...
After showing the partition table, FIPS reports:

Error: Unknown Filesystem: 0Bh

and exit with Bye!

I agree that FIPS can only work w/ DOS 3.1+ FATS, but I thought that W95
used Compatible filesystems....

Anyone knows a workaround??? (Yes, I don't have a 800 MB Tape to backup
all my w95 partition!!!!)

Please send answers to my email to

Just a guess, but it might be that your system has the new VFAT-32
filesystem, which FIPS wouldn't recognize.  If so, the only way I know
of to fix this would be to buy the commericial package Partition
Magic, which is like FIPS on steroids.  It handles FAT, FAT-32, HPFS,
and NTFS partitions (but not ext2, unfortunately, though rumor has it
this may be in the works).

1. w95 -> PPP -> Linux problems

        I'm having problems setting up a ppp server on my linux box.
Actually, the server seems to work if I manually type in the login and
passwd, but I'd like to use PAP.  

        I have the entry in the passwd file set like this:

pppuser:passwdhere:500:100:ppp user:/tmp:/usr/lib/ppp/pppd passive +pap
:X.X.X.X

        The /etc/ppp/pap-secrets file looks like this:

pppuser www     passwd

(www is the ppp server name)

        The system never get's past the PAP...

Any ideas,

Dan
