I am trying to convert all of my computers over to Linux, and had no problem with installing Yellow Dog on my iMac, but I am having a devil of a time trying to install Suse 7.0 Pro on my (s)Tinkpad R31 without completely reformatting the hard drive. When I try to repartition, fips 20 tells me that the HD cannot be locked and Partition Magic tells me that the HD number cannot be identified. There has to be an easier way than to wipe my HD of all of my (like-it-or-not) Windows files. I know there is a way to run Partition Magic from DOS, but I have long since lost my computer saave.
Ultimately, all I have succeeded in doing is frustrate myself.
Thanks for the help.
