ok, i have partitioned my drives as fallows:
hda1 is windows 7 gig
hda2 is root for linus 1 gig
hda3 extended partition on rest of hd 13 gigs
hda5 swap 1 gig (ligical)
hda6 /usr mnt point 5 gig (logical)
hda7 /opt mnt point 2 gig (logical)
hda8 /home mnt point rest of hd (logical drive)

In the installation, i fallowed some real good instructions, i did full install, all went perfect on my 1st try

Then i reboot, and i login as root.
Then i am spposed to configur my xf86.conf file or w/e
so i type xorgconfig and go through the steps, and all went fine,m then i saved it
