Question Help!!!

If you read my other post you will see my problem. I was giving some good advice. I made the partition for windows 2000 and installed it. I pop in the linux boot disk again. When I get to disk Druid I can't make any partitions. It says there is not enough room in the unallocated space. which is bovine ordure. what do i do now?

Moderator's note: I know you're frustrated, but please keep it G rated. Thanks. (And I hope someone can help you with this.)

This could be any number of things...
Which distro are you installing? just how much space is allocated/unallocated and to where, and are you sure your drive(s) is/are not physically erroneous?

I'm trying to install Redhat 5.0. It's the only one I got. This is what I'm dealing with... I had Win2k installed. I formatted the whole HD with the Win2k setup. Then I made (with win2k setup) a primary 10GB Fat32 to install win2k to. After installation completed, I used win2k's Disk Manager to create another primary partition 25 GB in size with the NTFS to store my files on. I have 2.27 GBs unallocated left. I'm not sure If my disk is erroneous. I doubt it because it's fairly new. How can i check? Thanks for the help.

Try 7.1 and newer - if you download 7.3 - 9.0, you only need the first three CDs, the rest are SRPMS.

How can i check?
Make a new partition in te unallocated space, then check aeach partition thruroughly with ScanDisk.

with the NTFS to store my files on
Remember that while Linux can *read* from NTFS, the whole writing bit is till under development. FAT32 is the best solution for multi-platform sharing - it's what I'm using to keep my winXP, Slackare, and RedHat installations working smoothly together. The problem is prolly with the redhat installation software.
