There is no "unmount" command. Try "umount" without the extra 'n'. > > > When I run partition magic in Win2000, its says that I have a BAD > > > partition.

PM is saying > the whole primary parition (both Windows 2000 + FBSD) is BAD (nothing > to do with surface errors) I don't know anything about your partition table so I can't say for sure if PartitionMagic has gone nuts or not. I do remember it had "issues" with BSD slices, but that was about a year ago. I don't use PM so knowing if these issues are resolved now is impossible for me. > I can't remember where I read it (BSD site or book, will look later) > but when you make the slices, the sizes must add up to a certain > divisable number, otherwise part of the partition (small number like > 1024kb) will be unusable. Thats why PM is saying that the whole > partition is BAD. But I don't know how to fix this ??? Use the "fdisk" command on your disk to print the partition table and show me the output.
