Im trying to put unix FreeBSD on my computer

i bought my computer from gateway about a year ago. i decided to try using a different OS so i tried partitioning my hard drive . It came with a older partion magic 4.0 and i tried using that but when i tried to install FreeBSD it wouldn't recongnise my drives. I just got lost on how to fix my problem so i took the partition off and now the bootmanager keeps coming up when i start my computer.

i got a new version of partition magic 5.0 and when i got choosing the size it told me that my drive can't be partition.

FDISK

Suggest you try FDISK to work with your hard disk partitions.
