I have recently replaced a 220MB /dev/hdb IDE disk housing WIN95 with
a 1280MB /dev/hdb IDE disk housing WIN95. I used to use LILO to
boot either Linux or WIN95; however now selecting the WIN95 partition
via LILO causes the system to hang. I *am* using Western Digital
OnTrack Disk Manager (I believe; i.e. I used it to load DOS/Win3.1
and then installed WIN95 over this. Can't tell if Win95 uses it's
own manager or still uses the OnTrack thingy). Anyway, Linux fdisk
doesn't recognize the partition type on /dev/hdb; it says UNKNOWN,
whereas with the old 220MB it says FAT16. Does anyone know if using
a >1024 WIN95 disk can cause fdisk/Linux in general to not recognize
it as a FAT16? Do I need the linear option? I don't really care about
the long filename support; just want to be able to fire up WIN95 from
Thanks for the help in advance and I'll post the solution if I find
a successful one.....
