Redhat 6.1/Win98 unwanted HD mirroring
Posted on 2000-03-09
I've got a P3/600 with a single 20Gb drive. It's partitioned as a single primary for Win98 of 5Gb (using Win98 fdisk) and a 15Gb Extended partition (using Linux fdisk) containing 2 * 5Gb Win98 partions with the remaining 5Gb in 6 partitions for Redhat 6.1. I made sure to zero out the first 512 bytes of the 2 Win98 logical drives with dd prior to formatting them under Win98.
Linux runs fine. Redhat runs fine. But the 2 * 5Gb Win98 logical drives (D: & E:) appear to be mirroring each other. None of the diagnostics see anything wrong...
W'sup w/dat? I'd really like to stop the mirroring and have use of both 5Gb partitions!
I can afford to re-install everything except the main Win98 primary partition if need-be, but would prefer an easier solution.
