Slackware64 install on MacBook 6,1 triple-boot
I have been using Slackware(64) for awhile now on several other computers and I'm thinking about installing it on my MacBook. I currently have:
/dev/sda1 -- that weird boot partition OSX uses
/dev/sda2 -- the OSX partition
/dev/sda3 -- ext4 running SolusOS 1.0
/dev/sda4 -- Windows XP
I have had the triple boot running for about 1 year and a half now and have installed several other distros outside of SolusOS. I have also installed Slackware(64) multiple times, but when I went to select the root partition (after starting the setup) it gave me this list:
/dev/sda1: gobbeldygook that matches what it should be
/dev/sda3: Same size as sda3 and checks out
/dev/sda3: ^see above
To see if anything happened I selected the second sda3 and it gave me a little thing saying it found a FAT/NTFS partition and if I wanted to put it in the fstab so it found /dev/sda4.
I don't want to just go and pick one and risk losing all of my data (yes it is all backed up but it is a pain to install/restore OSX/Windows). Any reason why it is giving me two sda3's? Should I be worried and/or is there something I should do to fix this?
