Ready to install but partition trouble...


Im not 100% sure but I believe there I am being told there is no more room for Linux partitions...

I had no idea I was going to have to split the Windows Partition. I dont mind but how is it that I go about doing it? and do it safely...

Thanks for the help...

Also I was aksed if I had any scsi devices? what are those? hard drives or something?

Well for one if you dont no what a scsi is then you dont have one. I aint sure what a scsi is but i no that much. About the partition as far as i no you will have to use cfdisk or partition majic to partition your hd and that will normally wipe the data already on the hard drive.

Correct me (which i think you will)

the trouble is you selected the / or /usr mount point with less disk space that is required by the installation you've aimed to perform.
