Currently have WinME / 2000Pro dual boot system.
Have 40GB HD currently split to 17.3GB WinME (FAT32) / 10.7GB Win2000 / 10.2GB unused.
Trying to install RH7.2 in the 10.2GB space.
Have ISO files (MD5 sums are OK) and boot disk.
Run either normal or 'expert' install - I end up in Disk Druid text mode to create partitions.
From the manual it seem I need to create;
Mount Point Size
/swap at least as much as the RAM in system
/boot 50MB min
/ root partition
Whichever order I try to create these in I cannot create the 3rd! When creating the first I get a message saying that the partition table on /tmp/hda is inconsistent - that this is safe to ignore - but ignoring may cause (fixable) problems with boot loaders and FAT32 systems. Full of bravado I press ignore. Create 2 partitions - doesn't matter which of the 3. Go to create 3rd and receive message 'could not allocate requested partitions: partitioning failed: could not allocate partitions.
I would create the partitions using FDISK but the /M option is a little less helpful than I would like - I don't want to destroy my ME and 2000Pro setups.
Do I need to move my free space to the start of the disk - I have a utility which will move my ME and 2000 partitions to the end - or do I have to set the disk to LBA or PIO mode4?... Dunno....
I want to get this to work - I just don't know where to go for the answers!!
Sorry for the long post!!
