Sorry for the confusion, I have been working on this for 2 days. I have a drive that was giving me trouble with partitioning. Here is my drive...
sda5 / (Mint, working with fresh install)
sda6 / (Mandriva, trying to install but getting error: "There is already a partition with mount point /")
sda7 / (OpenSuse/Other to be installed)
sda8 (file storage)
I want to try out different linux flavors. I have been using Ubuntu for about 2 years and do not like the "Amazon Suggestion" so I am preparing to bail on them. I would think that I should be able to have multiple "/" mount points if they are on separate partitions. If that is the case the question is why am I getting the error: "There is already a partition with mount point /"?
