Redhat WS 4.0 Install

I use a dual boot system and I have Windows XP Pro and Redhat Linux Enterprise Work Station 4.0 installed. I use Partition Magic 8.0 to manage all my partitions, including Linux. The documentation for Partition Magic says to avoid using Disk Druid during the install of Linux. This is true and Partition Magic looses it's ability to see the Linux partitions. The Redhat install has only two options for partitions during the install. One option is to let the install create the partitions in unused space or two name the partitions using Disk Druid. My question is there a way to install Redhat and use the PM created partitions without going into Disk Druid?

You will need to use discdruid to specify the use location of each partition. As long as you don,t change the partition in any other way you shoul be right. Partion Magic shoul have allowed you to specify the partition sizes and types. Disc druid shoul read these and therefore not have to writew any partition table information. I hope this helps.
