[Beige G3>Floppy Boot]Help! Can't do partition to install!

Not install linux before:

I got to the partition screen, hit enter, asked for drive all I get is hdc I try to type something and can't type anything. go to the console type cfdisk or mac-fdisk can't find it.

What do I do?

I have a Maxtor 80GB just formated into HFS single partition so I can go exclusively with Debian on my dev server.

All I have in the Disk ultility in OS 9 (CD-ROM boot) is AUX, so I didn't think I could use that.

I am competely new to linux first time installing so step by step please.

Aiso how many partitions? I was going to do

Swap: 2GB
/home:62GB (reamaining)

For now it's going to be used for LAMP and AFP (or NFS) so I can view the HD on my MDD G4. I also will run cron to backup my live server and such.

Beige G3 MT Rev A 768MB RAM Rage II+2MB, Radeon Mac:Edition, SCSI Internal ZIP 24xCD-ROM/768MB RAM OrangeMicro USB/Firewire (origanal) Asanta 10/100baseT Ethernet.

Would rather use Asanta Ethernet since it's faster of course.

Thanks for the help.
