Attempting to move a Maxtor 40 gb slave drive from one system to another. BIOS recognizes the drive, fdisk shows the expected two partitions but says they are non-dos partitions. Win 98se does not recognize the drive.

Why are the partitions shown as non-dos?

When this drive was in place in the former system it was configured as a slave and it had two working (I presume) dos partitions.
