Description David Balažic 2000-02-21 04:43:53 EST
text mode install from CD.
At the LILO configuration screen it says :

Device    |  Partition type
/dev/hda1    DOS/Windows
/dev/hda6    Linux extended   <--  ?????

Why is there 'Linux extended' ?

fdisk -l output :  ( simplifyed )
 partition  ID  System
 hda1       b   WIN95 FAT32
 hda2       82  Linux swap
 hda3       5   Extended
 hda5       b   WIN95 FAT32
 hda6       83  Linux
 hda7       b   WIN95 FAT32
 hda8       6   FAT16
