I want to install linux on sda2 but gparted will not allow me to make enough partitions for a /boot / and swap and I don't want to try to install without a swap partition. I have vista installed on sda3 and sda4 is full of data I don't want to delete as well.
here is what my partitions look like before attempting anything
next I create an ext3 or ext2 partition of around 30gb and then attempt to create a swap partition. here is what I get
okay however when I try to delete the primary partition and create an extended partition gparted will only allow me to create a primary partition, not a logical or extended partition
anyone know what I should do?
