I want to install Cent OS5 on my machine.the Hard Disk is SATA. I want to discuss about how to custom partition the hard disk.In the old version there is a drop down list for manual partition the hard disk. like /,boot,swap,var etc etc. In the new version of centos 5 I can not see things like that.
During installation process and in partition page there are things like
Remove all partitions on selected drives and create default layout.
Remove Linux partitions on selected drives and create default layout.
Use free space on selected drives and create default layout.
Create custom layout.
when I choose custom layout it show me an error message.
"An error has occurred-no invalid devices were found on which to create new files system.please check your hardware for the cause of this problem."
The problem would be i am using SATA hard disk on the machine? Please guide me.
