fips 07h error - PLEASE HELP!


I've been using linux for a while now, but today I had my first go at dual booting (met with complete failure).

When I run fips from DOS, it gives me a partition table inconsistency (which from what I can tell is not fatal). After the inconsistency error, I get a message saying that it 07h system type is invalid.

If any one knows what is going on, and how to fix it I would be thrilled, because I really don't want to buy partition magic!

Thanks a lot,
