[SLUG] Install problems ...


Hi, 
I have just been abused by a (former?) friend for getting him to try
linux.
I suggested he install linux on his system (win 95) which was split into
2 partitions, primary dos and extended dos. After he installed linux
(Mandrake 7.1), windows can't access his second (data) partition
-attempt to access beyond superblock kernel panic.
 Has anyone done this sort of install? Is there a reason why it
shouldn't work?

Regards, Mehmet

P.S. fdisk /mbr fixed windows.
