i have a 4G IDE drive with W95.
i'm installing FBSD 2.2.2.

everything goes OK, except
the BootEasy doesn't recognize
FBSD on my 2nd partition.
it just gives me F? when i 
select F2..

i have all the correct CYL/HD/SEC
numbers in the partition editor.
i have the / partition below 504M.

when the kernel boots (i boot the 
HD kernel via floppy boot prompt)
the kernel probe for wd0 shows
incorrect CYL/HD values.

partion editor - 969/128/63 (correct)
wd0 boot probe - 7752/16/63 (incorrect)

i can boot to W95 (F1), and can boot 
the kernel in / via floppy.

is there any way to force BootEasy to
boot my kernel on the 2nd partition?
i tired all the MBR tools, but all they
do is re-write existing MBR's.
please email me, as i'm not subscribed.
