Dear Hsiao :
According to your message, The reason for missing Win98 partition is
your kernel biuld did not support VFAT format. All you need to do is
recompile a kernel. Do you know how to compile kernel?

Subject: [TLUG] LOADLIN.... one question, please?
My Hard Disk is too big (13G). LILO can't handle with it.
So I use a floppy disk to boot into LINUX.
There is an article talking about using 'LOADLIN' to boot into LINUX.
[cf. mini-HOWTO "Loadlin+Win95" and "Loadlin+Win98"
I've tried it but there exists some problems as which I had
described to the author:-----

The author told me that:---

Is there anyone who has some idea about it, please ?
I don't what is VFAT. How to do it?
Thanks a lot!
