on installing Mandrake on my computer, currently running Win Me as well, it created a partition to store itself on. I have since 'lost' that partition, is there a free or cheap program similar to Partition Magic Pro that I can use to properly remove all partitions and allow windows to access the 'lost' part of the hard drive without losing the data currently held on the Windows part of the HD?

How do you mean that you have 'lost the partition'? You can use DOS FDISK to delete the Linux ext2 partition and replace it with a FAT32 partition - just don't touch the partition with Win Me on it.

reading what I have posted, I didn't really explain what I wanted to do very well..... I haven't 'lost the other part of the Hard drive.... I want to merge the extended partition with the current primary drive without losing the data on the primary. so far I havn't found a 'free' or cheap program that will do this, I spose I'll have to shell out $$ for a new copy of Partition Magic.
