I have a linux drive, an SATA 80gb from Samsung. Somehow my partition table
has been HOZED...

I get the following error: 

root at 2[knoppix]# fdisk -l /dev/sda

Disk /dev/sda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   /dev/sda9            1165        9729    68798331   83  Linux



For whatever reaason, I can't seem to get the machine too boot on its own,
though I have it booted up with knoppix disk and I can mount and read from
and write to all the partitions, all the data appears to be intact.....

I ran gpart a few days ago, to bring back the partition table to the current
state. 

I need someone who is a partition guru to help me figure out how to get the
table set right so it will boot and run. 

Thanks, 

Scott
