no primary partion
 
I am trying to install rh8 from a disc that worked fine on another comp. evertime i go to the format, no matter which option i choose, disk druid or auto, after i try to change the partion table, it says no primary partion is set active. i went into the windows dos fdisk and it says i have on 38 gig primary dos, how do i get linux to install?

windows is using up all your drivespace. u need to:

- shrink the windows partition by resizing it
- repartition and plan your partition layout to allot space for Red Hat

If you want u can use this tool
