I did check that.  My basic problem is I have some stuff on my NTFS disk
that I need to get over to another HD which has my linux swap and root 
partitions.  Is there a "fips.exe" type utility that would work on a linux
patition?  That way I could shrink that partition a bit and make a FAT 
partition which could be mounted.

Thanks again.
