I used fdisk to create my partions, but setup doesn't detect them. My system specs.
Computer = HP pavilion dv5000
Harddrive = 120 gig
Ram = 2 gig
Alright, I try to make a swap partion.
I see no partions
It asks external or primary partion
The partion number
it says, "First cylinder (1-81, default 1):"
Then says, "Last cylinder +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (1-81, default 81):"
then says out of range, but wasn't I supposed to make the swap twice as much as ram?
then I change the type to 82
Now I make another partion, (the slackware book told me too.)
Now the type
Then says,(to the best of my memory, probaly wrong) "first cylinder (12-81, default 81):"
then, (to best of memory) "last cylinder or +size or +sizeM or +sizeK (12-81, default 81):"
then shows root screen.
Displays a message about not being able to find partions.
I have been trying for about 30 minutes, the same thing over and over.
