i need help! newbie!
i'm trying to install RH7.0, with win98.
ok now i've deleted all the contents that was on my C: in FDISK, now i've lost my win98 ?
i've formated C: back, but i guess i need to install win98 again, but not having win98 on a disk of some sort might be a problem?
??
??

i tested, i fscked.

Levo,

You said it "I tested, I fscked".

As you have found out, you shouldn't have deleted your Win98 partition and formatted the entire drive.

Without the Win98 disk, you might as well install RH7 and jump in with both feet.

It may not be the answer you wanted, but you left yourself no options.

Sorry.

Check this for the proper steps. It could have saved your Windows partition.

Cool

I did the same thing a couple of days ago so you aren't on your own. Partition Magic is a good tool if you are looking for one.
