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 

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?
