Increasing DOS partition
I just performed some fall cleaning by running a fresh install (like
the one-disk install, thanks!). All went relatively smoothly except
on the DOS side.
I totally repartitioned the disks although I left /dev/sda1 as the
DOS partition, only bigger. cfdisk in Linux showed the increased
partition size, fdisk on a DOS boot floppy was also happy, but a
"dir" in DOS showed the old size, and a "format /s" also formatted
based upon the old size. One other hint: when I mount the partition
from Linux, it also shows the old size.
Any tips as to how I can format (or whatever) the DOS partition so
that the OSs recognize the entire partition? And hopefully do this
without destroying all my work on the other partitions.
