Here's a sample email you would get:
I really need to finish up this three OS in one drive project. Every time I spend a night working on it, I fail to send out posts for a few days or so. This last time, a few nights ago, I came real close. All I thought I had left to do was to figure out the ARC path name so that Windows NT boot loader would load Windows off of a FATpartition (lost yet?). Then I rebooted into NT...all good...reboot into Linux...ow. Turns out that the Winpartition had overwritten half of one Linux partition and the entire Linux swap partition. Oi. Close...so close. -dave
