I have finally finished downloading SUSE eval Linux. I am having trouble formatting my hard drive. I have a Dell Dimension 8400 with a 160GB SATA HDD.I have tried to format it using the FDISK, start up disk commands but all failed. For some odd reason it does not let me format it. I have also tried installing Linux but if failed when trying to shrink the windows partition.
1) Does anyone know how to format it??
2) How do I partition it and what format should it be??(I.e. VFAT, FAT 32 etc.)
3) How to dual boot
Thank you very much for your help btw sorry if the question does not make a lot of sense i'm new to this whole thing
