The author of this HOWTO is Jean-Daniel Dodin. I can be joined at My masqued e-mail.
I want to thank Rolf Klausen who write the previous partition-rescue mini HOWTO even if I rewrite it almost entirely, he had first the good idea.
Every other member of the Linux community and everybody who supports Linux and writes documentation and programs for Linux and all the authors of the LDP and virtually any person involved in anything which has to do with Linux. Particularly Linus B. Torvalds - he is _The King_ !!!
I want also to thank Michail Brzitwa (see web site in the text) for writing gpart !
Bryce Nesbitt <bryce at obviously dot com> did a very good job, "Linux own info" is from him as are some minor enhancements.
