hey arun i'm sorry for posting my problem here............ coz i'm unable to PM you, so i'm posting here...........

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
dear friends,
before few days, my pc was running fine. Than i saw a magazine "SMART COMPUTING SERIES" with free "LINUX BIZDESK CD 4.0". but i'm unable to install it on my pc.
before few days my pc config was given as below:
winXP(PRO) on e: (15 gb)
pictures+games+songs d: (15 gb)
some documents on c: (7 gb)

then i installed LINUX succesfully on C: DRIVE by formatting(only c drive), now problem was that winXP was unable to load and also i forgot my root password(in linux), so i formatted all drives except D:, due to this i have lost all files of winXP, now my c: and d: are empty. So i installed winXP again on C: drive!
now my E: DRIVE is totaly empty, and [b]here is new and major problem that LINUX is refusing to install on E: drive[b] during installation whenever i select(in partion option) AUTO PARTIONITING >>KEEP ALL PARTION AND USE EXISTING PARTION then it gives this message box:
ERROR PARTIONATING
could not allocate requested partions
Partionating failed: Could not allocate partions as primary partions.

and then say that go back and choose manual partionating
MANUAL PARTIONATING >>ADD PARTION >>FILE SYSTEM TYPE in this option when i select swap as 500 mb then it gave same message:
ERROR PARTIONATING
could not allocate requested partions
Partionating failed: Could not allocate partions as primary partions.

and when i select D: than also same message!!!!!!!!!!
i've checked my hard disk by running scandisk and ther is no errors/bad sectors, and also i've defragmented my all drive.
plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz frnds, plz help me now i dont want to format my drive again, plzzzzzzzzz help me how can i install LINUX on my drive??????????????

First of all, don't hijack threads to ask your questions.

Secondly, what does Indian have to do with anything in asking your question(s)? Please review our rules and try posting with better netiquette when asking questions, you'll most likely get better responses and faster ones that is.

Moved: More suitable in Newbie as well, instead of General.
