Unhappy SUSE 10 Super/Slick Installed and now no disk space


I reinstalled SUSE but with version OPenSUSE SUPER version 10. and it works fine but when I come to load new programmes YAST informs me that I have no disk space. I did an automatic install of SUSE and seem to have an adequate amount of space.
The following read out is what I get in the Partitioner programme. I have had no problems previously installing SUSE. Could it be a bug in Super/Slick version?

I originally thought it was a problem with the size of the partition but now I am not sure.

I am a basic novice with this system could someone advise

I run Windows XP on disk 1 and SUSE on Disk 2

/dev/hda 74.5 GB ST380011A

/dev/hda 1 34.1 GB HPFS/NTFS /windows/C

/hda2 40.4 GB Extended

/hda5 40.4 HPFS/NTFS /windows/E

/dev/hdb 111.7 GB ST3120022A

/dev/hdb1 1011.8 MB Linux Swap

/dev/hdb2 110.7 GB Extended

/dev/hdb5 1011 MB Linux Swap

/dev/hdb6 109.8 GB Linux Native

Thanks for any help offered.

First off you don't need 2 1000 MB swap partitions try customizing

Something like this.

/dev/hdb 111.7 GB ST3120022A

700 MB "Swap"
11 GB "/" ReiserFS
100 GB "Home" ReiserFS

SUSE 10 Super/Slick Installed and now no disk space

Mojojo, Thanks for the advice. I am not sure how I got two swap partitions.
My knowledge on this subject is very limited. Could you advise how I alter the partitions. I have had no luck so far.

Thanks again.
Steve

I would suggest reinstalling suse and setting up your partitons that way.So you don't have all the headaches that come with resizing and formatting already existing partitions and editing your fstab.For future reference the root partition holds all your programs your home partion hold all your user settings and saved material.And swap you can think of that as added memory any more than 1000mb swap space is useless. I have 500MB and it is just fine.
And I reccomend ReiserFS as your filesystem.

Now when you startup the suse installer click on Partioning Setup and choose the custom setup. It will show you exactly what you posted above. Leave the Hardrive HDA alone. And setup HDB like I posted above.
