Hi,

I have almost always used dual boot here, but I am using LVM since only a few 
months. To my dismay, Windows does NOT auto-ignore these partitions, giving 
me useless D:, E: , drives. 

More than the inconvenient of having my CD-ROM drive letter pushed away to the 
middle of the alphabet, I am constantly startled by the possibility that 
Windows actually corrupts my main OS partitions'. 

So, does anybody know how to hide non-FAT partitions from Windows? I am using 
Edgy 6.10 up-to-date.

regards
FF
