I had this ver. installed and had it working ok with a dual-boot manager(Boot
Magic). I then received a removable drive and wanted it set up on a seperate
drive. When I tried to get it installed on the seperate drive, it would
install, but upon reboot it would come up with a file system problem and would
not boot in to Linux.I have tried to reinstall twice and still get same
problem. Upon checking with Partiton Magic it seems there is an extended
partition and I suspect the Mbr is in extended and not first partition. Does
anyone have a clue what the problem is.Also when I tried to delete the
partitions, Partition Magic came up with an error and would not let me do
anything to fix.
