From the minimal footprints left behind, I'd say it was a scripted attack, and most likely something like a DOS setup. I doubt if anyone doing that would also go looking for a mountable Windows partition. Anyway, I boot into Windows on this system about once every three months normally. I think I'll risk it, as a re-install, being a notebook, it a bit messy. I'll keep it in mind, though.
