certain partition types that Windows does not like to see when it is
setting up a permanent swap file. The problem doesn't affect my machine
because my Linux native partition (type 0x83) goes unrecognized, and thus
causes no problems.
I suggest temporarily changing the type of your Unix partition to
"unused" (0x00) by using Norton's DISKEDIT or any other tool capable of
changing the partition type. You should then be able to enter Windows
and set up your permanent swap file. Then change the partition type(s)
back, and you should be all set.
