I know, I trashed a partition table ages back, and myself & some others
had to cast some severe deep-magic spells on the machine to get the
partition table back.
"Hmm. Partition five was 400MB in size. Jump to that part of the disk,
and look for something that looks like a new extended partition table
Anyway, yeah Partition Magic would be nice, but if I could do it without
shelling out £30, or being a bad boy for looking for a cracked version..
I was wondering could you do weird stuff like change the partition table
to say that the extended partition starts later, and that the first
extended partition was actually a primary one..
