I have a fat32 partition, 2GB for Windows 95,a fat partition, 270MB,
a boot manager partition of 4MB, and the Linux / partition of 600MB.
Thus I've used all my primary partitions on the hard drive. I want to
use boot manager because I need to swap out Linux for OS2 on ocasion.
I once tried this with RH6.0 and nothing would boot when I replaced
the linux partition with an OS2 partition.
