I'm trying to install ubuntu 5.10 on a partition that I created with Partition Magic 8. My HD is partitioned as follows:
1 primary: 55gb NTFS (XP Pro)
2 logical: 15 gb exe3 for Linux install
3 logical: 2 gb linux swap
4 logical 40 gb NTFS (data)
5 logical 2 gb XP page file partition
So here's the problem. I put in the ubuntu install disk, and I see no way of directing it to install to the already existing partition. It either wants me to erase the whole HD (which I obviously don't want to do) or manually partition the drive (but it's already partitioned!). I go to manually partition, and hit complete to move on to installation, but it doesn't let me move on to installation (no root folder). I tried a bunch of things, but just ended up aborting the installation. No harm no foul, but I want my ubuntu!
I did all the partitioning in advance, and I will probably use Boot Magic rather than GRUB or LiLo, but I can't figure out how to move directly to some question like "On what partition would you like to install ubuntu," so that I could just direct it to the already existing Linux partition. Any ideas, ubuntu heads?
