Unhappy Geometry problem

Hi all,

Im trying to install Linux Red Hat in a 40GB HD where 4 partitions of 10GB are located. One of it has a Windows ME intalled.

Well, when I start the Linux installation process, my DOS partition is not indentified by the Linux installation and a message about
Geeometry problem is warning me if I folllow the process, all the data in the Dos partition will be lost.

What can I do to solve this problem?

My PC is a Pentium II 300MHz, 192MB Ram, Mobo PcChips m717
using Windows ME.

P.S: The BIOS just indetify Hard Disk until 30GB.

Can you help me?
