I'm currently running a dual boot with Windo$e on hda and Linux on hdb. I'm upgrading my motherboard/cpu and I'll just be using hdb (as its an ATA100 drive) in the new setup.
So......I'm gonna install winblo$e on the first part of the drive and use the rest for Linux.
Not being a partition guru
- there's a couple of problems.
1. DOS fdisk doesn't see Linux partitions, yet I need to install winblo$e on part of the Linux formatted disk.
I've got a copy of AEFDISK, but I'm not sure what commands are necessary just to get hdb 'formattable' (with FAT32) for the winblo$e part of the installation. Wouldn't 'delall' screw up both discs? BTW, I need to keep hda running until I know everything is OK!
2. If the partition table is on hda, would fdisk recognise hdb as just another drive if I just put it in and booted up?
I'm probably missing something obvious, but help would be appreciated
