Winlinux 2003 - Partition

I installed WinLinux 2003 over W98 SE and all went well until it began to configure the Boot file.

It gets stuck at "Making Win Linux Partition". No matter how mant timesd I reboot from the Win Linux Boot command it gets stuck here.

P4 1.7
Installed to "C" partition (about 5 gigis) on a 60 Gig HD

Any Advise would bwe appreciated.

As found at Support on (Quote):

Some users complained that WinLinux 2003 hangs forever at "Setting up WinLinux partitions". This update is intended to fix the bug.

Download from:

How to install a .rpm package:
1) Open the folder where you downloaded the package.
2) Click on the package to be installed.
3) When asked, type the root password.
4) When the Package Manager opens, click on install.

IMPORTANT: The Package Manager has a bug that makes it crash if you click on the package name on the listbox of the installation screen. To avoid this, click directly on the Install button.

Good luck!

Many thanks for reply.

The file I download is incomplete. It comes to me with a standard "Window"s logo.

When I try to open it it prompts the "Open With" dialogue box and of course I have no program to open it.

Could you or somebody else send this file to me as an attachment.

Many Thanks.
