Dual booting Slackware 12.1 with Windows XP Pro, can't partition
I recently downloaded Slackware 12.1 onto my computer
(ISOed it onto a DVD) with the intention of dual booting it with my Windows XP Pro SP3 already on there. I have a 250GB Hdd on an Extensa 5620 Acer Notebook.
My hard drive partioned currently is as follows:
113.24GB (Windows XP Pro and system programs) C:
58.59GB (Windows XP Pro games and music etc) D:
55.19 GB Un Allocated (Intended for the Linux installation, i will have 2 GB for swap space)
My problem is this, when I try to install a partion on the un allocated space all I get is 4096MB free space it does not even acknowledge the 50+ Gigs free space. Before I go to Fdisk or Cfdisk it says "Opened disk read-only - you have no permission to write"????
Even if I try to create the 4G partition it still doesn't let me install the program. Any ideas?? ?
