Question on using sys.com to recover win98 ( yes win98) from botched Linux install.
OK just making sure I got my bases covered.
I have an old IBM thinkpad. It has a 512MB FAT c: partition which has only the boot sector files. The rest is empty. Win98 is on the d: drive (FAT32).
Probably I'll try to put damn small linux on the c: drive.
I am expecting that I will have to turn c: into two partitions, one for Linux, and one for swap. I guess. Maybe my boot sector will get altered by GRUB or LILO or something
I am thinking that the installer for DSL will deal with it. I'm prepared to wing it, as I have a Win98 boot diskette that includes sys.com. So no matter how badly I screw up, I am thinking that I should be able to get my old boot sector back by doing sys c:.
Anyone here remember sys.com and can confirm that it will restore my boot sector no matter what Linux does to it?
