Fdisk error

This probably has nothing to do with the mu itself but this is
currently only Linux list where I could think of posting this message.

On my laptop I have this mu 9R5 installation, disk with following
partitions 1 Primary (/dev/hda1 housing dos and thinkpad utilities),
1 Extended (/dev/hda2) in wich are: two ŽLinux-native pratitions
(/dev/hda5 & /dev/hda6) one linix-swap (/dev/hda3)

The proplem is that fdisk reports partitions that are on the extended
partition incorrectly, it says that they are /dev/hda5 & /dev/hda6.
The kernel gives out correct partition information at boot time, my
root is on /dev/hda5 (wich doen't exist acording to fdisk...) and my
/home is on /dev/hda6

So something changes the partition names between the kernel and

Any clues about this stange problem?

BTW I'm still looking for that e2fsck wich runs on mu, I have this
one from an old EXT addon wich doesn't run.
