Did I mention it is a Dell? ^&*&^%&***&^%&*
OK, I was able to resize that partition, but it became of "unknown"
type, or was that "other"? In any case I tried to start Win again, but
I had a nice conversation with a lady at Dell, who told me that Ctrl-F11
would ( she didn't say the words but ) re-ghost the machine, back to the
shipped state. Since it is a new install anyway, no big deal.
The client also decided that rebooting would be too difficult for the
user switching between XP, unable to see any network cable, to Linux,
connected to the firewall and the Internet, for e-mail and other
purposes. So the Dell is going to run XP Home and not have a network
cable and he is going to buy a second machine to run Linux and do
e-mail! Of course disk sharing is no longer an option, but oh, well.

Which one? I have used RIP for various purposes.
