Installing SuSE on an external FireWire drive: YaST can't edit partitions on drive
I am trying to install SuSE on an extgernal FireWire drive with XP on the main drive.
The drive is reagognized, however, when the install program inspects my system, it says that YaST will not be able to partition the drive correctly for SuSE.
How should I prep my (blank) external drive so that YaST can modify the partitions and continue with the install?
I have tried many things, like opening the terminal (alt+F9) and setting up a normal Linux partition and a Linux swap partition, and yet the install still does not work.
Is there a special way of formatting the drive (I have been doing so through Windows)?
