Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks, but really since PM seems to be desguising your fat32 partition as it's own proprietary filesystem, I think you are going to have to use it's own tools to recover it. If this were fat32 or ntfs we'd be done by now
yes yes i know hehe, well MasterC thanks for your time, well i did change it's i.d from its own one to fat32..heres the output of fdisk -l
[root@localhost etc]# fdisk -l

If you have access to a windows box you can put the PM cd in and create the floppies without installing the PM program on windows.I never install the PM program to the hdd-I just run the create floppies thing from the cd.HTH
