  Hi Andrew,

  ok, now I got want you mean and I got a step further (using parted_1.4.3)

  output is now:
   |# parted /dev/hda1 print
   |Warning: Device /dev/hda1 is neither a SCSI nor IDE drive.
   |Ignore Cancel ? i
   |Disk geometry for /dev/hda1: 0.000-1055.219 megabytes
   |Disk label type: loop
   |Minor    Start       End     Filesystem  Flags
   |1          0.000   1055.219  FAT
   |# parted /dev/hda1 cp 1 /dev/hde 2
   |Warning: Device /dev/hda1 is neither a SCSI nor IDE drive.
   |Ignore Cancel ? i
   |Warning: Error reading /proc/swaps (No such file or directory) to determine 
   |partition is mounted.
   |Fatal: Bad FAT: cluster 12560 is cross-linked for \WINDOWS\WIN.INI

   The Warning, might be due to the fact the I am still using Linux 2.0.32.
   But both partitions are definitly not mounted.

   Is there any way to overcome this FATAL error ?

    Note: I didn't install this WINDOWS myself. It is the original
          installation of a Toshiba notebook (from 02/98).


  PS: Is this only me, how has so much bad luck with the partitioning stuff ?
