ok, here is what i did first, and what happened.
105 meg hard drive, partitioned it to 100meg /dev/hda1
and the rest to /dev/hda2 for swap
attempted to boot from hard drive
error : Invalid partition table
interesting eh? so what did i do?
repartitioned hard drive so that NO partition was greater than that
65356 block limit or whatever it is for making the file system...well
now it boots just fine from the hard drive...
my dilema...i'm getting ready to install linux onto a 212MEG hard drive,
and i do NOT want to have to partition it so that each one is within
that block limit.....how do i get it to understand a 200 meg /dev/hda1
and a 12meg /dev/hda2 without running into the invalid partition table
prob again?????? any help? :-)
