    Live Distro and Windows


    The settings on my windows 2000 hard drive were set as a 'floating drive' and I recently installed Acronis Disk Director for dual booting on my hard drive. But after trying to reboot my computer it told gave me an error message saying that it could not reboot as Acronis Disk Director does not support floating hard drives. Is there any way that I can use any of linux live CD's (e.g. knoppix or mandrakemove) to reset or access the hard drive so that I can reset it or delete the Acronis Disk Director
