    fatal error with cfdisk


    I have the latest version of damn small linux. Without being root, cfdisk can't open the partition table. Trying results in a fatal error. If I am root, I can see the partition table. So with root, I repartitioned according to hard drive installation instructions, but when I run the hd install something weird happens and it just quits with no explanation. Then when I try to boot I get "error loading operating system". Any suggestions? thanks in advance.
