Ok first of all hello to everyone since this is my frist post
Now, the problem Im facing is that after booting from CD to install Slackware (I know its not recomended for newbies but I felt it was the one for me after reading the revies here and there) I run Fdisk to make my partitions wich are this way now
25GB NTFS Windows Wp >> primary partition
40GB NTFS My Main partition where I store everything >>> Logical partition
11GB FAT32, this partition is empty and its where I want to install linux >>> Logical partition
Usign Fdisk I delete the 11GB partition /dev/hda6, then I create a new partition "n", but whn it gives me option to chose the first and last cylinder it gaves me 9728-9729 I press enter and it creates the partition but only a few MB big
Since this partition is empty I was about to delete it, write the table to the disk, and then boot and create the partition since it may be the problem why it didnt recognize the hole free space. But (thanx god maybe) I decided to try from XP first, and when I wanted to delte the 11GB partition, it automatically remarks both partitions (40GB and 11GB) and says all the data on the volume will be lost, and also marks the 40GB partition (alone).
any Idea why this happens? if I delte the 11GB partition from fdisk will XP be able read the other 40GB partition? or they are related somehow?
Thanx in advance
PS: theres no chance to back up the data on the drives
ps2: I created the partitions from Window XP installation menu
