Neither the DOS or the Linux fdisks are a panaceia. I use Partition Magic. I have 2 diskettes to boot it. It allows you to change types, format, create, move, resize and check. I have not tried to run it under dosemu. When I run the Linux installfests, I make sure that I bring at least 1 copy of Partition Magic as well as a bootable MS-DOS disk so I can do an fdisk /mbr to clear the master boot record. Partition Magic is one utility that is well worth its price. System Commander is another partitioning tool, but I prefer Partition Magic. Tim Hanson wrote:
I upgraded my system and along with the new board, processor, memory, and all that I bought a 30 gig hard drive. Cripes. Is there a better way?
