Windows always rewrites the mbr so it's not your
fault. I haven't bothered with boot disks since
knoppix et al appeared and that is your way forward.

Just follow James' excellent instructions at

Just mkdir the appropriate directory to mount your hd

always do the second one.

Are you the same Leo that used to come a few years

Merry christmas.
