I am having trouble with getting my linux partition into Bootmagic. I have Partition Magic 5 and I have these Drives:
Disk 1:
C:WIN98 | FAT32 | 4110.4 | 2679.1 | 1431.2 | Active | Primary

Disk 2:
D: | FAT32 | 8385.5 | 4569.2 | 3816.3 | None | Primary
*. | Extended | 1145.3 | 1145.3 | 0.0 | None | Primary
*.Linux | Linux Ext2 | 1082.5 | 832.5 | 250.5 | Bootable | Logical
*.SWAP-SPACE | Linux Swap | 62.7 | 0.0 | 62.7 | None | Logical

For those unfamiliar with Partition Magic, The catagories are:
Partition | Type | Size MB | Used MB | Unused MB | Status | Pri/Log

Okay, now I go into bootmagic and it detects my c: drive (good) that has windows 98 and then it detects my primary first partition as being bootable with "Win95/98 or MS-DOS". So I look in the help and it says if your drive you want to boot from was not detected then click the advanced box and choose your drive. I click, and nothing happens, It only shows my C: and my first partition.

I'm really stumped here. Please help.

I think Boot Magic will only boot to drives that have letters assigned to them.

Why doesn't your Linux drive have a letter? Can you get it one in PQMagic somehow?

I have no idea why my linux partition doesnt have a drive letter. To the best of my knowledge, all non FAT or FAT32 drives dont show up in windows. I've gone through all the help files, tools and other commands and cant seem to find anything that will solve this.

I don't know anything about Linux, and this seems to be an issue with getting a Linux partition to be seen.

So, I am moving this over to the Linux forum where they will hopefully have some answers for you.

Please make a new post here if you have trouble booting to 95/98.
