Sorry for the offtopic post, but i'm trying to get my
win95 to play nice with my linux.
Heres the problem and any help you can give i would
really appreciate, please reply to my email and not to
the list (pablo8itall at yahoo.ie) thanks.
I recently put together a new computer myself, i
bought all new stuff except for the hard drive.
The hard drive is a 10gig (UATA/33 , i think),
initially win98 was on this drive and it was divided
into two partitions.
I didn't want win98 and i wanted more partitions on
I think the bios is in LBA mode, but i'm typing this
at work and i'm not sure.
So i repartited into several partitions:
1 500 megs my win95 system
2 1000 megs this is a load of partitions for linux
3 2000 megs for win95 games.
4 1000 megs for win95 programs
and the rest is free space at the moment.
I used linux's fdisk to partition them and i used
fat16 dos (large) as the type for the win95
After i installed dos and then win95 the first
partition they both indicated that the size of the
first partition (drive C:) is 2000 megs..?
I thought that it was just a minor problem until i
found that things in the second drive were becoming
corrupt and it always happened if something was
installed on the c:\ drive. I haven't seen stuff thats
installed on the second drive corrupt stuff on the
first, but i haven't investigated much.
Does it have anything to do with the type of
filesystem i picked for the partition?
Or the bios mode?
I ran Dos's FDisk and it reported the same information
as the linux program did.
How can i get win95 to stay within the first partition
that i set for it?
I am trying to get linux installed with win95, but it
seems win95 won't play nice.
