phew! back to windows! i installed linux and basically got it working, but i fucked up my Master Boot Record, so i couldn't boot ANY operating system. took me a few hours, but i found out there's an undocumented fdisk /mbr option to delete your boot record, which then makes it default to the 1st dos partition (my Win 98 drive).
