Setting up swap partition for new installation
I'm trying to install SuSE 8.1 onto a low spec laptop which used to have Win95 on it, but following a reformat of the hard drive, now has a small MSDOS partition and another virgin partition waiting for some Linux goodness.
My problem is that when I start the installtion, there isn't enough memory to run YAST, so it asks for a swap disc location. Trouble is as far as I know there isn't a Linux file system anywhere on the hard drive at this point.
How to I format the partition as a linux system - the installation package doesn't give me any options.
