On boot, my copy of Linux goes into Kernel Panic after noticing that my partition table's changed. This started after I resized a few MS-DOS partitions, in no way modifying the Linux one.
I use Lilo to boot, but it's not been affected; The kernel has loaded and is doing its Partition Check when it finds the problem.

This is not very specific...  As long as your linux kernel
is still available, and the linux partition is untouched, you
can do whatever you want to with your other partitions.  Do you
use LILO?  Did you install Win '95 (which blows away the MBR
and in turn whacks LILO in the process) on any of these other
partitions?  Assuming the answer is no to all of the above, I
would boot off some floppies (grab some boot images off the net
if you don't have any) and manually run e2fsck on your linux
partition.  I would also rerun /sbin/lilo if thats what you use
to boot.  If you are still stuck, what would be *really* helpful
to solve your problem is boot a Linux boot disk, and print the
partition table from fdisk -- also, try to give some version
specific info -- what kernel... what is the error message?
(unable to mount root 3:2, etc....)  What is your boot manager?
IDE drive?  SCSI?  Help us help you =)
