Redhat 9.0 partition problem


Autopartition won't work

I have tried disk druid but that won't work either

Error says not a primary partition.

I have 2 partitions C: which is a rescue disk and D: which is the hardrive

System says they are both fat32 disks

Getting fed up now

was looking forward to having a dual boot system

The first disk can't even find my hard drive on my other computer

Help !!!

Regards
Beaks

How is your hard drive set up? How large is it, how many hard drives have you got, what's on it at the moment, how much free space have you got for linux? I assume you've got one hard drive, and windows is using part of it as a master/rescue disk. The rest is for windows/linux. So how much free space have you allocated? I don't think redhat can shrink your windows install, so you'll have to create some space first.

Beaky;
some of this does not make sense...
You say C is a rescue disk---do you mean CD?
Does the harddrive have only one partition (D)?

We need to know the basic configuration of your system, including the number and size of the drives (partitions)

When you boot from a Linux installation CD, you have to have empty (unpartitioned) space on a harddrive--or you will neve get to first base.

More details---more help..

Thanks for your help

I have finally got the installation working.

I love it but I cannot get my wireless connection to work.

No lights on my pcmcia card ?

It is an inexq card MR054g(R02)

If I can find the drivers how do I install them into Linux??

Bear in mind I am an absolute Beginner

Thanks for your help so far

Cheers

Leighton
