Slackware install on multiple drives


Hi-

I'm trying to install Slackware 10.2 on a new system. The system has HW mirrored partition of 36GB for the OS, and a HW stripe consisting of 3 146GB drives for a database partition. I'm looking to install Slackware on the 36GB partition and keep all of the mysql databases on the 438GB partition.

I have fidsked both "drives" and created the partitioning scheme. When Slackware prompts for the boot partition and swap partitions, it finds those on the 36GB drive (so far so good) but it doesn't see the 438GB partition at all.

Any ideas or helpful hints on how I can get this accomplished?

Thanks in advance...

Which kernel did you choose, what output do you get from
Code:
fdisk -l
?


Cheers,

And there's your problem. You have an extended partition,
but no logical partitions defined inside it.
