I could change the extended partition limits, but even using the very same
sectors for partitions 5 and 6, I couldn't recover them. of course I had
nothing valuable on them before, but it's weird, I couldn't even mount the ext3
one.

The other partitions (primary) where not affected by the move, and now YaST
(and probably parted, not tested) can see the disk and change it.

The disk was old and held not only linux but Windows, so it's difficult to know
how such a situation could happen. YaST should give the "overlapping" warning
(enhancement).

parted should give at least the partitions limits (sectors) to allow debugging.
I couldn't make YaST display the sector numbers.

I beg this bug can be closed? do it or instruct me to do
thanks
jdd
