I tried changing an existing dos partition into a ext2 one using
# mkfs.ext2 /dev/hda7
But the partition type is still FAT 32 when I use fdisk(in Linux). I am not
able to mount it as a FAT partition though. If I delete the partition then my
partition numbers get changed i.e.
If I am delete /dev/hda7 -- FAT 32 (mentioned above)
then the following happens
/dev/hda8 -----> /dev/hda9 (Linux swap)
/dev/hda9 -----> /dev/hda8 (ext2)
The /dev/hda9 partition houses LInux. If the partition number changes then I
may need to run LILO again. But is there no other way out to convert the
existing FAT partition to an ext2 partition.
