question about filesystem setup .....

Hi. I have a 30gig HDD partitioned in 2 parts Win98/Linux

Win98 is on the first have of the disk

How come when I type the command df
it lists

/dev/hda7 <somestuff> /
/dev/hda5/ <somestuff> /boot
none <somestuff> /dev/shm

My question is How come if Win98 is hda1 Linux doesnt start it's filesystem at hda2 and further
Instead it starts at hda5? Did I do something wrong at install? Linux seems to work fine.

curious thanks

First don't say Linux, Linux is just the kenrel. I's a minor but
important mistake most people make

Alway state you distro.

use fdisk or cfdisk or diskdruid to see the entire disk.
and post output.
