Talking Fedora Core 5 Install


Hi Friends,

When attempting to install Fedora Core 5 (yes, I know that it is not the current distro) I select the customize my partition layout. When
Disk Druid was accessed I performed the following tasks:

New Partition
I selected (/) and gave it 100 MB

The system returned a message of "you cannot use this selection as the primary partition"

I didnot intend it to be.

I have gone through this same install procedure before without this problem.

I customize my partition table as follows

/

/boot

/swap

What am I doing wrong?

Is that the only distro on your box? Is the message actually telling you that you are out of primary partitions? A bit hard to tell from your description
