Some background... I decided to play with my laptop and install Red Hat 7. Everything I read about the installer ritual said I could add a Linux partition without killing the existing Windows install...

I once had mkLinux and a BeOS pre-release on my old PowerCenter Mac clone, so the concept of hard drive partitioning wasn't totally alien.

But the Red Hat installer left me a bit mystified and I think I killed my Win98 install when I edited the drive partition to carve out a 3 gig Linux partition... At least I'm smart enough to have backed up all my data before dinking around with this stuff.

What I know: LILO wants to know the mount point for a dos volume, but I'm not sure how to identify whether it's hda2, hda3, etc. I do know the RedHat install is on hda1 and that I've got a 64mb Linux swap volume on there, too -- these are the partitions I created during the RedHat install.

What I don't know: did I stomp my Win98 install when I edited the partition? How can I tell?

First, did you defrag your HDD completely before doing the partition? I mean IMMEDIATELY, meaning defrag, and reboot to the installer.

For some odd reason, resizing the partition doesn't work that well. You're better off to remove the FAT32 partition completely, and re-add it with enough size to include the Ext2 and Linux swap.

With redhat 6.x +, you don't need to set a mount point. If you are wanting to dual boot. Basically, as long as you don't delete your fat32 partition redhat will do the rest for you. Sooooo, I have a feeling you accidentally dumped all your partitions. The best way to do it.... Get a win9x boot disk, boot to it and at the command prompt: fdisk /mbr. This command will place your master boot record back to windows format(also it is a little known boot sector virus cleaner). Once you do that go ahead and check if your system will boot to windows if not. recreate your fat32 partition and reload windows. You don't have to install any of the drivers at this point just get windows boot properly. Now load redhat and select the manually adjust partition. DO NOT REMOVE THE FAT32 partition! #1 - create a partition labeled /boot 30 meg in size. #2 - create swap space whatever size you want. #3 create / for the rest of your hdd. After that smooth sailing. :smile: Feel free to drop me an icq or email and I'll help you with what I can. :smile:
