You only have one partition? And this 690Mb is unformatted space?

It's not really clear exactly how your system is set-up. Is that the full output of 'df -h'? If not post the full output and also post the contents of /etc/fstab.

You can use cfdisk to format the 690MB, then mount it at /usr/src/linux-2.6.0 (or whatever you are installing. mke2fs is used for setting it up. Careful with cfdisk, as you could wipe out / and end up with a new install.

You should double check that the 690MB is not your swap.

The disks are mounted in /etc/fstab. Be very careful changing this file, as you can screw up mounting / as well.

John, i tried not to do something not right but did it. Maybe you could somehow help me?
I could not boot from any linux disk any win2000 boots but auto rebooting in some time.
May be i need to use some special tool in order to get my hard to normal condition?

Robik,

What resources do you have to fix this? A linux rescue disk? Linux installation CDs? Which distro?

It's not clear whether your win2000 partition is booting or not? I guess you're posting this from a different computer?

I'm afraid I have to leave in about half an hour so I won't be able to help you much. I would suggest posting a new thread with the above information. Try to be as clear as possible.

Good luck!

John
