DOS 7.0 in Win98 se. It has never been a problem before in this aspect.

Oh, it does. It's a very nice boot manager.

I will soon. I am conducting some experiments with parted on my test machine 
right now so I will send a print log later.

What are the guide lines for creating a new FAT32 partition? I want it to cover 
the whole disk but Parted lets me define the size several megabytes larger than 
what fdisk or ranish partition manager seem to let me do. Can this be a 
problem? That the partition I create simply is too big? Should I leave some 
space at the end instead?

kind regards
