I had a parition in W2000 at the end of my second HD about 2G in size I used for Linux.
For a much too long history of how it got changed to unallocated, but that's what it is
now, unallocated, according to PM 8.0. W2000 shows it as free space. If I use fdisk in
Linux, fdisk doesn't see the partition at all. I would like to somehow designate it as a
linux partition by changing the contents as little as possible, so that I can mount it in
hopes of seeing what's there. Short of that, and maybe better, I would like to scan the
former partition for the occurence of text like "somepgrm.c" and see if any of the old
source files out there still exist. Even better would be to find the "somepgrm.c" as an
entry pointing to the actual source, so that I could retrieve it. Comments?
I found a program called hexdump on a bootable linux cd, but it puts out so much output,
it's useless for the above. Perhaps there is a utility in linux of the sort I mention
above for retrieving the source data.
