Description Simon 2004-08-25 12:22:18 EDT
Description of problem:
FC2 disk 1 is recognised so I enter linux rescue boot mode to get 
parted and repartition for dual boot.  When I proceed FC2 complains 
the disk is not FC2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Get a Toshiba P20 with XP pre-installed and boot fro FC2 cd-rom to 
repartition in linux rescue mode

Steps to Reproduce:
1. As above
Actual results:
FC2 says replace the cd-rom it's not FC2 anymore

Expected results:
I'm not really that surprised, but it would have been nice if I could 
have repartitioned and installed

Additional info:
If there are future problems how will I get rescue mode? There isn't 
a rescue boot img
