[vox] Why LUGOD rocks



Thanks to the help (and infinite patience) of Rod Roark and a couple of
other folks, I've finally finished the massive restructuring of the
partition tables on my new hard drive.  It also took quite a bit of guts
on my part -- I get the willies whenever I deal with poking in the guts
of an OS or disk partitions.  I can only imagine how difficult a chore
this all would have been with Windows.

There are a few minor issues remaining, but on the whole everything
looks really good.

Here's the old partition table:

Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 14589 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1      2550  20482843+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2          2551      2563    104422+  83  Linux
/dev/hda3          2564     14524  96076732+  83  Linux
/dev/hda4         14525     14589    522112+   f  Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5         14525     14589    522081   82  Linux swap

....and here's the new one:


Disk /dev/hda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 14589 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes

   Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/hda1   *         1      2550  20482843+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2          2551      2563    104422+  83  Linux
/dev/hda3          2564      3794   9888007+  83  Linux
/dev/hda4          3795     14589  86710837+   f  Win95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/hda5          3795      4055   2096451   82  Linux swap
/dev/hda6          4056      4708   5245191   83  Linux
/dev/hda7          4709      8624  31455238+  83  Linux
/dev/hda8          8625      9929  10482381   83  Linux
/dev/hda9          9930     10451   4192933+   6  FAT16


The next step is getting that second hard drive, which contains my old
Linux installation, mounted and ready to go.  All I need off of that
drive are some data files, though, so once it's mounted it should be a
snap.  

Oh, and thanks also to Pete Salzman, who reminded me that I could use
mkfs.vfat to turn a FAT32 partition into a FAT16 partition even when
Windows said it was impossible. ;-)
