Thanks for your response. Sure, attached is the dd output of the first 512
bytes of /dev/hda. Please note however that my partition info has changed
since my original post. I still have the same problem however, so I think
this is still relevant. Anyway, what I've done since is run Power Quest
Partition Magic v8.0 from DOS to resize my partitions, which seemed to
complete successfully except that now my DOS partition is unbootable (I
suspect it is because I now have a 1.5GB FAT16 partition -- doh!).

address@hidden:~$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2             6.7G  5.3G  1.2G  83% /
/dev/hda1             1.5G   11M  1.5G   1% /dos

Updated fdisk and parted output:

address@hidden:~$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/hda

This is rather strange.

Could you send the first 512 bytes of your hard disk?

dd if=/dev/hda of=disk-start.img bs=512 count=1
