go to the CLI on ur Linux box. run cfdisk, this is a
curses based interface for the fdisk command.
Now check ur partitions and see if vrythin is right.
u could dos format the partition in Linux itself. 1st
in cfdisk change the partition type, save ur changes
and then exit.
Once u have done that...
bash# mkfs.msdos /dev/hd**
This 1 shoudl work fine in most cases, even if this 1
doesn't work out then delete the windoZe partition and
create a new partition after havin booted from a DOS
