Yeah, I forgot about the JAZ problem.

hda1 (0b/0c) C:Win95 (2G)
hda2 (0b/0c) D:Data (270M)
hda3 (0a) Boot Manager (4M)
hda4 (83) Linux (600M)

Right ? Hmmm....

All but hda1 (DOS,Win95/98) can be in an exended partition(i.e. hda5 bis....),
but you seem to lacking disk space.

How about the following:

lilo in MBR
hda1 (0b/0c) C:Win95 (800M)
hda5 (0b/0c) D:Data (300M)
hda6 (0f) OS/2 HPFS (600M)
hda7 (83) Linux (1G)
hda8 (82) LinuxSwap (200M)

With the Windoze Apps on the JAZ :-)

lilo in MBR
hda1 (0b/0c) C:Win95 (2G)
hda5 (0b/0c) D:Data (270M)
hda6 (83) Linux (600M)
hda7 (82) LinuxSwap (172M)
