Thank you but I don't want to go back to Windows only
I want Windows on Partition 1 and Linux on partition 2 :o)
Please read this this is the problem I think but I don't know the solucion
I had Redhat 7.2 installed in my PC and than the Cylinder size of my
Harddisk changed and I could not use Fdisk in DOS anymore to make and delete
I want to do that couse I want to instal Windows 98 on the first Partition
and Linux Redhat on the second.
Somebody know how to change the Cylinder size ?
In the BIOS I tryed to change the setting of the harddisk to LBA or an other
but it seems that he stil stay on 16383 or 8155
Now at the moment I installed WinNT4 couse I could Not boot anymore and with
the Winnt4 cd I could do it and I deleted al partitions of Linux with the
Instalation and made new partitions.
But DOS stil can't see the partitions and I can Not Use FDisk
When I Try to use FDisk he see NO partitions only the C with NT on it.
When I make a FAT partition with Partition Magic DOS stil don't see it.
Please Help What can I do ??
