Problem with FIPS

When I tell fips to split partition # 1, it says that it cannot split a non-dos partition (even though it is).  Then it says "must be of type 4 or 6" but our partition's type is 0ch or something (fips says so).

Your real answer is to use Partition Magic, as hwillekens said.  The latest version gives you a lot of flexibility as to how you rearrange partitions, and it doesn't care nearly so much whether a partition appears to be a DOS partition...

However, if you fire up a copy of the Linux fdisk, check that partition 1 is of type 4 or 6, defrag the partition under DOS (or win95, or whatever), FIPS should be much happier to split it for you.  Make sure, too, that you aren't using all four primary partitions on the drive!
