I may have made a * mistake: I cannot boot my dos partition and cannot
access it under Linux.
What has heppened is I was playing around with the LILO program. At first I
couldn't get the lilo working, i.e., I couldn't get LILO when I boot from
harddisk. Then I edited the very first line of the 'config' file in the
directory /etc/lilo. I changed
boot=/dev/hda6 ! my Linux partition
boot=/dev/hda1 ! my dos boot partition (a great mistake? )
and then I ran lilo. After this I was able to see the LILO prompt and could
use SHIFT, TAB or ALT keys to get the os menu. Linux boots up fine but when
I choose to boot DOS, it ignored and continue to boot Linux. I shut down
the system and rebooted but still couldn't boot dos. I was sweating now.
Then I got out my note and found the someone said that you can remove the
Linux signature (or whatever it is) from the boot disk by issuing the command
so I booted dos up from floppy and did it. Unfortunately it didn't help. I
also tried to access disk C: from within Linux with no luck: no MSDOS file
system found on /dev/hda1!
Question 1: Is there anyway to recover my dos partition?
Question 2: What have I done (dangerously) wrong?
