I didn't want to write yet another Windows article, but today
I talked to a BIOS engineer who had just debugged a Save To Disk process
that broke with Windows 98. Save To Disk saves the state of a
portable computer so that you can effectively turn it off,
saving power, but turn it back on and resume where you left.
It turns out that Windows 98 was moving the Save 2 Disk partition
on the disk. Since LILO records the physical location of
vmlinux if Windows 98 does this to a linux partition,
IT WILL BREAK LINUX, Be OS, and anything else using a LILO
type of boot mechanism. I wonder whether this was done on
purpose... What can we do about it? Whatever you do, if you
use Win98, you better have a rescue floppy.
