Red face Error Message when booting up Linux


I was trying to dual boot Win2k( on Dell Dimension box) with FAT32 file system and Mandrake Linux for Window version.
I have win2k on Primary, and have an other partition ready for Linux.
The installation using Lnx4win installation toool was pretty much automatic,
all I need to do is select that partition reserved for linux. But it may miss count the drive name. It was the F: drive (cd-rom drive)it asks me to choose while it is actually the G: drive that have that partition.

After I have finished the installation and reboot, it gave me any error message after I seleted Linux to boot, and saying : "Error: The selected cylinder exceeds the maxium supported by the BIOS"

Can any please help? and very appreciated!
