Win98 is partition one. Linux is part two and NT was supposed to be
partition three. On trying to install - it screwed the partition table
up. Therefore, NT is not installed just now.

I think the data is fine in Partition one - its just inaccessible
because the partition info is incorrect. I really need some program that
can "fix" this partition table entry.

Thats what I use but my clients use Ms Access front ends and so that one
is needed and VB - same reason - RAD in Win. Will look at transgaming
though - looks good.
