time to solve. Based on what I've read, such problems are unusual,
but not impossible. It's always wise to make backups prior to messing
around with partitions.
I am currently using boot magic as my boot manager with great success.
I had been using LILO as my boot manager with no problems, but prefer
to be able to choose what OS to load with a mouse an/or arrow keys
rather than typing (and misspelling) the name(s). To switch to boot
magic, I moved LILO from the MBR to the Linux partition, and then
installed boot magic (I did make sure I had a working boot floppy
before trying though!).
I haven't actually moved/resized/created any partitions with PM4 yet,
although it does recognize all the partitions on my drive. I did have
great success with PM3, however.
*The only thing certain about the future is that it hasn't happened yet.*
