Moses,

See post #1 and post $12. I believe that information is there. If not, I now have the computer here, and I can fire it up and run that.

Thanks

Moses,

Windoze is the master drive. It had Win 98 English & Win 98 Chinese dual boot.

C: 15MB
D: 15MB
E: 10MB

As I said before, if you need the fdisk output, I'll fire it up and get it for you.

Sorry.

I see two ext3 partitions on /dev/hda and no bootable partitions on /dev/hdb. This means that if your friend truly can boot to linux, any previous data on /dev/hda has been overwritten by the linux install.

Thanks for trying, Moses.

We'll chalk this one up to experience. Back to the drawing board. We're going to upgrade his box to a AMD 2000+ on an Asus KT 400 chipset and 1GB of ram. Then we'll install XP and then RedHat 9.

Shouldn't be but a few more days before HuggyBear starts posting again.
