now I have used parted to clone some different pc's with different hardware and
different hdd setups according to section 8 i the parted manual.
One pc has got two drives on the primary ide interface with one partition on
each drive and another has got only one drive with two partitions.
After successfully dumping a clone into the partitions I experience problems
using fdisk from msdos and the xosl boot manager. Fdisk beeps and exits right
away when I start it and Xosl complaints that it cannot find drive C: when I
try to install it.
Any ideas? Of course I can switch to another boot loader but these problems are
a bit worrying. I don't want to use Parted on a large scale before I know what
this is about.
I use kernel version 2.4.5 with a statically compiled Parted v1.4.16
