Linux is capable of accessing all of those partitions if you configure it to.
It doesn't really have the concept of a "C:" drive at all.

For beginners who want to go beyond the bootable Zigzag demo disk,
I recommend getting the most recent Red Hat, Caldera or SuSE Linux
distribution, installing that according to the instructions, installing
the Perl Curses module according to its instructions and then downloading
the latest Zigzag source code archive from our website.  Please let me
know if you want more detailed help.
