installing on a hdb with win
I have 2 HD's, the first one i use only for WIN (40gig, hda). This was my original HD.
The second is partially formated to work with WIN ( total is 160GIG, 60GIG to WIN, 100GIG to UNIX, hdb).
The unformated part is the slot (100GIG) that i want to use for Mandrake9.1/10.
Now when i go through the partitioning part of the installation i get the following error: "An error occured dos formatting of hdb1 failed".
Now hdb1 is the part that is allocated to WIN. I do not wish to touch that but the installation program is insisting that i do so and throws an error.
Is there a way i can avoid this?
