Hello, I wanted to have FreeBSD on my first drive and Win98 on the second, but of course windows doesn't like being on the second disk, and began "preparing" my first drive which already had FreeBSD on it! Well, I swapped the drives over, put W98 on the first one, they both boot fine and I didn't lose any data.
BUT - Windows now sees my BSD disk (which has never happened before) and keeps offering to format it for me. Partition Magic gives its filesystem type as 'BAD' rather than 'FreeBSD/i386', as it used to. Weirdly, Boot Magic (bundled with Partition Magic) found both operating systems with no difficulty. Since this isn't actually causing me a problem, I wouldn't normally care what Windows thinks of my BSD disk, but I'm worried one of my kids will press 'Yes' to a format one day... ...any ideas? su-2.05b# bsdlabel /dev/ad1s1 # /dev/ad1s1: 8 partitions: # size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg] a: 2097152 0 4.2BSD 0 0 0 b: 2097152 2097152 swap c: 156296322 0 unused 0 0 # "raw" part, don't edit d: 1048576 4194304 4.2BSD 0 0 0 e: 1048576 5242880 4.2BSD 0 0 0 f: 150004866 6291456 4.2BSD 0 0 0 su-2.05b# Thanks, Ben _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
