What have you got on partition 6? If it is nothing critical, you could try deleting the partition, and recreating it.

I typed sfdisc

Code:
/dev/hda: 120060864

Disk /dev/hda: 238216 cylinders, 16 heads, 63 sectors/track
Warning: extended partition does not start at a cylinder boundary.
DOS and Linux will interpret the contents differently.
Warning: The partition table looks like it was made
  for C/H/S=*/255/63 (instead of 238216/16/63).
For this listing I'll assume that geometry.
Units = cylinders of 8225280 bytes, blocks of 1024 bytes, counting from 0

   Device Boot Start     End   #cyls    #blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1          0+   5590    5591-  44909676    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2   *   5591   14945    9355   75144037+   f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda3          0       -       0          0    0  Empty
/dev/hda4          0       -       0          0    0  Empty
/dev/hda5       6374+  14945    8572-  68854558+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda6       5591+   5735     145-   1164649+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/hda7       5736+   6373     638-   5124703+  83  Linux
total: 120060864 blocks
I think sth is wrong...
I cant use partitions editors, coz it show error on startup

what are you doing with hda3 and hda4? seems like you are just asking for problems by leaving them in your partition table. Also you could just remove hda6 and then remake it since it is your swap partition. No crucial data will be lost.

tamoneya, If you run sfdisc on any disk, it always reports hda3 and hda4. Since they are 0 in size, there is no partition there. If you do a df command, it will list the partitions that are there.

Syrioosh,

Does windoze boot successfully? Does linux boot successfully? Or is this an issue you see only with the partitioning tools?
