when i boot up into linux and its running through all the processes, it says ok to everything except when it tries to mount my swap partition it says failed, i just reinstalled windows on my windows partition and fixed the mbr so grub works again, but i think windows took over my swap partition when it reinstalled, because now i have an E: drive on my windows partition with an unrecognized format, is there a way i can get my linux partition to take back the swap partition that the evil windows stole from it?
hmm i just tried to mount it and it said wrong fs type, i remmeber i got the same error message when i tried mounting my windows partition, but i fixed that by running /sbin/modprobe ntfs. i tried to run /sbin/modprobe vfat, but that didnt work is there some other command i should run?
