I am using MS-DOS fdisk and I don't want to reinstall anything. I was
fairly sure that it was possible to have more than one primary FAT
partition but MS-DOS's fdisk seems to refuse creating it with my current
setup. I'm not sure why this is, but at present I have a 2Gig primary
dos partition, followed by a 2Gig extended (with Linux / and swap) and
then 2Gigs of free space.
Do all primaries have to come before the extended? (I doubt it) The
reason I am using MSDOS fdisk is because I seem to remember reading that
creating partitions for Win95 under Linux is a bad idea. Is this
