problems with fdisk and cfdisk
p3 600/via apollo 133a chipset (chaintech ct 6ata2)
maxtor 40gb 7200rpm
1st thing i did was delete the 2 previous partitions and created a new 8gb ntfs partition for windows xp. windows installed and works.
now using slackware 10 install cd, im trying to run fdisk or cfdisk. both wont run.
"fatal error: unable to open disk drive"
"unable to open /dev/hda1"
im thinking its something to do with the previous 2 partitions. i setup a NTFS partition using win xp cd on the remaining space but im still getting the same problems.
im a linux noob so i really dont know what else to do.
