    Because DOS and Windows are egocentric maniac and don't think that you
    should be allowed to have more than one system on the PC, while Linux
    knows that it could happen.

    For your education: All DOS, Win9x, and WinME systems basically have a
    DOS kernel, most of them have a fancier and fancier GUI planted on top
    of that much as Linux has a Linux kernel and an X11 GUI and various
    window managers stuffed on top of it.

    NT of various flavors, Windows 2000, and Windows XP all have basically a
    VMS kernel, stolen by David Cutler and his merry gang of software
    pirates from DEC by Microsoft. (Search the web for the lawsuit history,
    it's fascinating reading about how Microsoft's "development" efforts are
    so often blatant theft.)

    Note also, that this was about when DEC was giving up on VMS and
    switching over to UNIX due to its many advantages of flexibility and
    multi-user use. That's *why* they let Cutler go, they weren't going to
    publish the "PRISM" release of VMS he had worked so hard on.

    Run fdisk -l from your linux sytem . I guess it will propably show you the
    partition type of that partition to be not '6' but 'b' 'c' or 'e', which
    are known by Win95 or newer but not by MSDOS 6 or older.
