First, when I booted from CD, my screen remained blank when the graphical install ran. So, I ran the text installer.

Second, when I got to the point of partitioning my drives:
(a) I have to internal drives (C & D) and both showed up as C.

(b) Whichever one I chose ('tried both) ended with a report that the partition was too fragmented and that I should run "defrag" from /usr/bin/perl-install/ How do I do that? (BTW, the first thing I did before running the install was to run scandisk and defrag on both drives. Everything should be hunky-dory...)

This is for boxed set of Mandrake Power Pack. Thanks!
