Not as easy as it sounds, but doable. I was hoping to avoid that.
First, I must boot from DOS/WinXX bootable media and then FDISK/MBR. So
now, how do I boot the FC3 install? Looks like rescue mode is in order,
but since I don't usual install from optical media (I do network
installs almost exclusively), I *have* no rescue disk, currently. Argh!
The things I have to go through to do a simple test. Be back in a while
