But some time i mess with my installation.
So, I use Partition magic browser to browse my damage installation, and get what i need (like downloaded files or emails).
As i say before it was easy to do it with Redhat 9 and other fedora release.
BTW, when i run windows XP, I can see the Fedora partition listed with my other windows partition. but i can not get access to ot (it's reported like an empty partition.
Parition magic reported it as (Type 8E) partition. but the BOOT partiton is reported as (Linux ext3).
