fdisk problems, installing Linux on old windows server
Please be patient with me, I'm new to Linux when it comes to installing.
I've picked up an old Dell Poweredge 4300 windows server. It has XP currently on it but does not boot.
I want to install Slackware 10.0 on it but when I use 'cfdisk' I get a message saying 'Fatal error' and returns me to the linux prompt. I've tried using fdisk to wipe the disks but I can't seem to get anywhere with it. How do I wipe the server and create a linux partition?
The server has a 7 x 9Gb SCSI drive installed. Could this be the problem?
