problem in install (error partitioning)


here is my problem


when i try to install linux red hat 9
this is what i got

error partitioning
could not allocate requested partitions :
partitioning failed could not allocate requested partitions as primary partitions


and another error after it

something about you have not defind a root partition or no disk space



but i got more than 50 GB free

and when i choose the partitions there is 2 only but i got 4 c:\ , d:\ , f:\ g:\
7 GB in c free and 8 GB in d free

maybe thats why i cant ?
maybe they are the only 2 shown !
38 GB free in F and 28 free in G

Maybe c: and d: are using FAT or NTFS and Linux
can't use that for an installation? Maybe you should
chose Reiserfs or ext3?


Cheers,

It would help if you could post what OS (if any) you have on all your partitions and where you want to put RH

Would be easiest to delete the two partitions
using RH's installation tools (I don't use RH,
so don't know how EXACTLY you go about it)
and tackle it from there...
