i don't know if fdisk is capable of handling the NTFS filesystems??
i know.. but you can always convert a FAT partion to NTFS at later time right?

Dell Dimension 4400
Intel CPU 1.60GHZ
256 RAM
1 20GD Maxtor HDD (Primary IDE 0 ) ( 2 partition )
1 60GB Western Digital (Secondary IDE 0)
1 40GB Western Digital (Primary IDE 1 ) ( 3 partition )
1 Samsung CD ROM (Secondary IDE 1 )

Ok now, got my Win XP on primary IDE 0 paetition 1 (MBR).. i installed WIN 98 on primary IDE 1 frist partition and later WIN 2000 on 2nd Partition.. i can dual boot to this OS by changing the orientation of the drive in BIOS.
then i insatall Linux Mandrake on the 3rd partition primary IDE 1 then disaster comes... my MBR was changed after LILO was insatlled during setup of mandrake.. ive got a series od 99 99 99.. on my screen.. it stops halfway on my screen then ive got again the option to boot eiter on my win 98 or 2000 but no LINUX..

ok then, since my dual boor works on IDE 1, how can i have triple boot using Win XP as my deafault OS considering WIn XP is on different HDD?

but then, LINUX is not even working...
