Hello Everyone.

Hakon, Great News! We have managed that.
Thanks to the updated version of find_drive_table you sent me
I was able to locate the exact cylinders for the partitions that
used to be in the freespace area.
It's with fdisk that I restored the partition and gave myself a
good scare by being off by +1 on the end cylinder; overlapping
onto hde5. But now, all is well. Thanks a lot.
Have you ever considered signing up for the cast of CSI as

All right. It's parted 1.4.14-pre1. Yeah... Linux kernel 2.4.5 was
new at the time. Quite a wonder that the floppy still works for me.
