Not enough space for root directory on a drive with 50g free space???
 
Here's the problem I have. I go through the steps to install suse linux 7.3 and a few steps in it will automatically recommend the new partitions you should create if this is your first installation. The problem is that it only gives me 500 mb for a root directory so I don't have anymore room to install any software packages. It shows that I have a windows partition of about 74 gb then shows a NTFS partition of 70 gb. So that's 4gb left of space, then after all of the boot partitions and everything else linux wants to create I'm left with basically nothing for my root directory. My question is, what in the hell do I do?

Check to make sure the extended partition size includes all of the unallocated space.
