as gparted won't resize the NTFS partition
i have never had an issue ,even with the "new and improved NTFS" in win7
but gparted should work
uncheck the partitions , format and leave it a blank unformated disk or a ext3 disk
then let the vector installer do the formatting and partitioning
currently what is on this WorkStation ?
How is it partitioned ?
and so on
NVIDIA GeForce 6600
might be an issue ,it is a "pci Express" or "agp 8x"
thought the 304 driver dose say it supports it
however the open Nouveau driver should work fine
The Nouveau driver IS THE ONLY driver that will work with some older hardware
I have a 11 year old Gforce 2 MX 400 ( yes a 2 ) and the Nouveau works just fine
The card is TO old for Xorg support
your "NVIDIA GeForce 6600" is not DEAD YET .
Close to it. It is on it's LAST driver support ,nvidia IS killing off the old cards .
so do not black list the Nouveau , use that for installing
What version of vector ?
or the 32 bit
