problem during disk partition in a toshiba laptop


I tried to install suse 10.2 in my new toshiba laptop that came with windows vista and I got the following error:
Failure occurred during following action
Creating partition /dev/sd5
System error code was -1008

I could not go beyond that (after pressing OK on that screen I just got something like a fatal error occured).
How can I solve this? Note that I installed suse 10.2 from
those cds (which I bought from the source) without problem
in a dell desktop.
Thanks.
Maria
