I definitely would not do this. You do not have enough space for /. And you do not have space for the partitioning in the first place. Keep only / and swap. And if you do this partitioning you are sure to fill / in no time. It would be mess for you.
Okay, i agree with u. But have a look at the below attachments.
They are the recommended partitions. But not necessarily required. Only required partitions are / and swap. I have not tried but with todays resources that systems come with, even swap should not be the bothering.
But these are the partitions that should be sufficient. If you want you can keep /boot on separate partition but do not bother with the others.
Even i wished the same, but there is a bug in my Linux software i think. When i try to partition it with the above size, an error message pops up and exits the installer. I vl soon upload a snap shot of that page...
Your cd could be corrupt. May be the iso you got from the net was corrupt? Did you check the integrity of the iso?
If the error is at the partitioning step, you could first partition your disk using some Live distribution like Partition Magic or Gparted and then install Fedora on the created partitions.
I didn't verify the ISO image. I want to verify it. As per the instruction i have to open the SHA1SUM file with a text editor. Have a look at the attachment. But where can i find that file??. Please help me!!
I found the Fedora 11 from http://www.fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora. Have a look at it. I went through the whole website, but couldn't find a link to download SHA1SUM file..Let me try installing it with VMware. If it didn't work, i vl download the iso again.
