    What Windows OS?

    Do you have Linux on the same drive? If so than it should be a primary partition. They both should be primaries otherwise you need a boot disk if it is installed on an extended partition.

    Ofcourse there is no FDISK for Win2k Pro but instead use Disk Manager.

    its not always hda1

    I noticed in most bootloader config it is not hda1 in lilo.conf or whatever. try changing that hda0 for the primary partition on the drive.

    if you just want to acces the drive you have to change the setting or add a line in /etc/fstab file if you want to boot your windows you have to reconfigure your lilo
