Description j.danielsson 1999-10-06 05:07:18 EDT
I have a dual boot system with win98 and 6.0. I booted your
6.1 disk, after selecting upgrade it said no linux
partitions found.  Just to check I then selected install
and fdisk, which found my linux partitions. Also on
rebooting I was able to boot into 6.0.  I tried this
So your install/upgrade program is broken.
Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-10-06 16:08:59 EDT
We will need you to post a copy of your current /etc/fstab from your
6.0 installation as well as a copy of what fdisk -l lists.
Comment 2 Jay Turner 1999-10-20 15:56:59 EDT
Do you have any Win98 extended partitions on your machine?  These
would appear in fdisk as type "f"  . . . there are known problems with
these partitions and a fix is being distributed the week of October
