@rudolf is there any particular reason Windows does this instead of just reading the partition?
@Xian_ The partition table is older than Linux, and using the type set in the partition table and leaving all other partitions alone is the correct way of doing it. Or in simple terms, the Linux way works, but is not correct.
@rudolf the more you know i guess, didn't know this at all.. Probably because i never ran both OS at the same time before, usually i runt them 6 months at a time until some game that runs better on windows comes out, lol
@Xian_ I am talking about msdos and ccpm on a 10 mb disk. Maybe some time before you had a compter :)
@rudolf more like some time before i was born! lol
