I have Win XP on one hard disk, and and Mandrake Linux 10 on my second.
My Win system got clobbered when I tried to install SP2 (a longish story I’ ll likely make a pit thread about), so I had to restore it via the system restore disks that came with the PC. To make a long story short, my boot loader (I can’t recall if it was LILO or GRUB) got removed from the MBR.
I was going to make a LINUX boot floppy before I restored, but I forgot, dammit. I KNEW this was going to happen, but I was so preoccupied with getting my gigs of MP3s and other media off the disk it slipped my mind. And I backed up some stuff onto the LINUX disk which I cannot see.
Which bring me to my second question, why can’t I mount the LINUX disk to a drive in Windows and read it from Windows? I never had that working, but now I really need it to get those backed up files. It’s just a FAT32 drive IIRC.
My Google search failed to come up with an answer, but I’ll do more searching and update this thread if I find anything.
