installing fedora 11 issues on a seagate barracuda

I tried by all means to install fedora 11 on my seagete 400gb barracuda disk , but is not working , it says there is not enough space and that is quite impossible , since i partitioned my hard disk in two , one of 100gb y other 300, i tried to install it in the 100gb but was no possible.

i tried another hard disk, a sangsung 8gb and worked, and i maxtor 30 gb and also worked, man, i bought that hard disk in order not to use only one disk on my pc.

anysuggestion will be welcome..

i would guess that it is not a 100 gig partition but a 100 meg one ? have you checked it ?

also it must be a FREE unformatted partition or a ext4 partition and a 100 meg ext3 partition for grub there needs to be TWO partitions for fedora .

Man , i made for partitions:

4-/home=all availible space left, im just finishing that i tried go partitioning , and it does not work.

But you say something about ext4 100mb partition. I used a ext4 for the / and home partition and ext3 for the /boot partition.

But u know what is funny, i installed it in a 8gb sangsung and was ok, but it was a old hard disk i had and suddently got flunk. And something else, i was thinking to use to hard disk one for the OS and the 400gb for the u know, movies, music that stuff.But know my pc only allow me two devices connected no more, i dont know why ,since that i only can use the 400gb disk.
