Re: Losing Linux (Again!)
By the sounds of things when you formatted the drive - you didn't install
the operating system.
In order to do this you either need the 'sys' command; or the 'format'
If you have 'sys' run: sys a: c:
If you have 'format' (no copy of 'sys') run: format c: /s
That way it will transfer the Win98 bootup information to the drive.
A good utility for resizing FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, EXT2, Linux SWAP partition
(creating as well) is Partition Magic. I think you need at least version 5 -
this will resize all of the above partitions, as well as create them - it is
very very efficient at doing this job. I've used it on a number of occasions
with my primary Linux partition to increase it's size and havn't had any
problems or data lose.
