Re: Using Partition Magic with Debian

I used partition magic 4 when it first came out. It worked fairly well,
but I found that it would corrupt logical partitions made under linux
fdisk. Basically it would change the partition type of the extended
partition which would hide the logical partitions. And if I recall
re-setting the partition type did not work. Don't know if that's been
fixed or not.
