I currently have the following hard geometry:

Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-58644.140 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem 
1          0.031   8197.229  primary   ext3       
2       8197.229  15390.395  primary   ext3        
3      15390.396  30388.579  primary   ext3        
4      30388.579  58643.525  extended              lba
5      30388.610  45386.762  logical   ext3        
6      45386.793  57615.930  logical   ext3        
7      57615.961  58635.681  logical   linux-swap  


due to a faulty XP installation and the fact that Disk
Druid doesn't make fat partitions larger than 2GB.

I am wondering if you can help me:

- I want to make minors 1,3 and 5 fat32
- I want to install back my Win98 (currently
partitions 1, 3, 5 are clean but ext3)
- I want to boot Win98 from minor 1

Can you help me or redirect me to a parted forum or
sth like that?
