Mangling partitions is fun. Especially when some half-baked utility adds a partition but doesn't zero the info for any overlapping ones. If I'd let the laptop boot Win2k after using phdisk.exe then things could have been... interesting...
It doesn't help that PartitionMagic took one look at the mess (which was a NTFS one the *full* size of the disk, and a save-to-disk one taking up the last 162MB of the disk) and went ugh. Still, since when has having to do thing the hard way ever stopped me...
