Boot sector > 1024 cylinders

Hello all,
I cud install linux (red hat 7.1) on fat 32. but the performance is very poor. So i created partition, 1 for linux native (2GB) & 1 for swap (150MB). But while installation, the swap drive can be created, but while creating native, I get error that boot sector > 1024 cylinders.
Pl. help.
I have 40 Gb hdd. From win98se i can see
C: 10 gb
D: 15 GB
E: 10GB
F: 2GB
G: 150MB
I want to use F: & G: for linux.

Please do not double post.
It won't speed up the replies only make people irritated.
This post falls into both newbie and installation but as it is more of an installation question I will close this thread.
