Disk information not correct on slackware install?
I'm trying to install Slackware 12.0 on a machine that currently has windows XP installed. I have two windows partitions already, both 80gb in size, and I have the second partition cleared. When I boot from the slackware cd and begin the install, both cfdisk and fdisk tell me that I only have 669MB on my disk. In addition, when I run cfdisk I get the message "opened disk read-only you have no permission to write".
I'm reluctant to try blindly manipulating my hard-drive when something doesn't seem right about the file size. I've tried going through the help menus to look at the options available to see if I could view my existing two 80gb partitions but I can't find anything promising.
If it helps, I have a dell dimension 9100.
