Resending, even my response was stuck. Sending as "plain text"
hopefully it will make it this time.

boot.ini looks pretty much standard. Now the question is whether
"partition(2)" and "partition(3)" are indeed intact ?
During the Linux install, was there any partition resizing ?

When you mount windows what partitions are mounted ? (/dev/hdx, /dev/sdx etc)
What are the filesystem type ? vfat (means FAT32), ntfs ?

Again, I may not be able to single handly resolve your problems, but
with these queries answered, PLUG folks can collectively help you.

Yes, it happens :(
You can use http://pastebin.com/, and copy just the link in your email
(I got this suggestion from this list, not too many days ago)
