I just installed Mandrake 7.0 off the PC PLUS DVD, but I made a mistake with partitioning the drive, and lost my windows partition. I had the "after 1024th cylinder" problem during the install, so I created a /boot partition at the first sector to let me boot under LILO.
Linux works grand, but I can't get windows to reinstall, because SCANDISK returns an error that it cant read the last cluster (i think).
Will I be able to get my machine dual booting without deleting my linux partitions?
Finally, can anyone recommend a cheap linux-compatible external modem (pref. 56k) ?
thx in advance,
BTW: I found when installing that there was a problem with the boot disk creator. It works if you use the dos program tho.
