Why indeed. I know for a fact that windows can be installed (before,
during or after a linux installation) (OK, maybe not during) on a
partition other than the first primary without difficulty. Mine is on
And I put windows on my laptop using the rescue disk that came with it
after linux, using a 15Gb partition (not sure of the layout though).
My guess is that either FC3 has an incompatible (windows-incompatible)
formatting / partitioning method, or that the OP is using an OEM supplied
rescue CD rather than a "proper" CD, which couldn't cope with anything
other than Windows.
Solaris 10 on /dev/hdd1, thats another issue. I'm making a full backup
before I go any further with that one.
