43   Verify that the partition is listed in /etc/fstab and is mounted
44   (e.g. /dev/hda1). Mondo will take care of everything else. The files
45   will be archived just like all other files in the live file system.
46   At restore-time, Mondo will take care of the boot sector of /dev/hda1
47   prior to the restore.</P>
48  <P ALIGN=JUSTIFY>
49   Note: if Windows ME/95/98 is not located on /dev/hda1 or /dev/sda1,
50   then Mondo will not take care of the boot sector of /dev/hda1. The
51   user will have to boot from a DOS floppy and run SYS C: to correct
52   the Windows boot sector.</P>

54   <A NAME="AEN139"></A>3.4.2. Windows NT4/2K/XP</H2>
55  <P ALIGN=JUSTIFY>
56   Windows NT4/2K/XP typically use the NTFS file system, not VFAT.. The
57   user should use '-x /dev/hda1' (or whichever device the Windows
58   partition resides). Mondo will treat the partition as a biggiefile.
59   Mondo will also add an entry to the mountlist to reflect the size and
60   type of the partition. The user may not edit that partition's size at
61   restore-time (for obvious reasons).</P>
62  <P ALIGN=LEFT>
63   <B>Please bear in mind that Mondo was written for Linux users. </B>If
64   Mondo does not backup or restore your Windows system well, you might
65   want to consider paying for 1-to-1 technical support. Ironically, the
66   only people to pay for 1-to-1 technical support have been Linux
67   users, whereas Windows users want a free ride. That is one reason why
68   the Linux community gives me warm fuzzies.</P>
