partition error during install
I recently got Red Hat 9, and partitioned my hard drive with Partition Magic 7. I made an unallocated 15 GB partition at the end of my disk.
When I installed using the GUI in Red Hat 9, I tried using the Auto-detect-partition feature, but it did not let me continue because it said I did not have a (/)root partition.
Then I went back to the manual partition detection, and I tried to make root, swap, and boot partitions. However, I could at most do two of the three. Every time I tried to create the third, it would say "cannot allocate partition."
Finally, I tried to create it without the swap partition, and Linux installed and worked, but only for a couple of hours, until the GNOME started crashing (i'm almost completely sure its because I had no swap). So I wanna reinstall Linux, but of course, those problems noted above are preventing a good install.
One last note - should I upgrade to PM8 (it supports ext3)?
Thanks a lot,
