I have problem with my win partition !!!!1
When i instaled slackware I split HDD in four partition, all primar !!
The first two, hda1 and hda2 was Fat 32 and hda3 and hda4 linux native and linux swap.Hda1 is partition where Win is instaled.
At the first time i was able to see second win partition -
-hda2 from Windows, but now I cant.
When i start cfdisk from linux it says that hda2 is hidden FAT32 !!!!!!!!!!
Why .... and how i can solve this problem ??????????????

If your second primary has been hidden you will need to use something like Partition Magic to unhide it. Multiple primarly partitions is supposed to cause problems with Windows but I've never had any problems myself. Unfortunately I don't know of any free software in the Linux arena that will hide/unhide a partition...

cheers.
