Problems with partitioning in RH 8.0
Iīm trying to install RH 8.0 but canīt create all the partiotions i want even tough there is over 11GB of free space. I want 2 dualboot with W2k and my current HDD layout looks like this:
hd1 4996 MB primary FAT32
hda5 2996 MD logical + extended NTFS
Free 11476 MB starting at 1020cyl and ends at 2482cyl.
My HDD model is IBM-DJNA-352030 and has recently been zeroed out, even the MBR, before i reinstalled W2k. I can make 2 partitions (boot and /) and using like 3 GB of space but then it is stops. Canīt create any more, it just says "Canīt allocate partiotion.
When i choose 2 make a install using the automatic partition option it says something like that it canīt allocate any primary partition and that i havenīt declared a / partition, isnīt that suppose to happen auto during this opt?? I choose the option where it is gonna use the free space and not touch the already exisiting partitions.
Anyone got any ideas why this happens?? My cdīs that were made from .ISO is ok, burned them at low speed and choosed the test media option in the beginning of the install and they all passed..
Thx in advance and hope someone can help me..
