Not recognising Partition!!


Hi !!
i recently installed a new HD (80gb) as secondary. I had a 10GB and i have windows and mandrake in them.In my 80 GB i have partitioned 30 gb (FAT32 file system) for data and i left it as unlocated. I did this using windows partition manager.
NOW...
i was installing slackware 10.1 and when i try to locate the installation partition using fdisk, it doesnt show me my 80GB drive or its partitions at all.What might be the cause for this?

Thanks for your time and effort guys...

Regards Azzath

Is it a SATA disk? If so, try using sata enabled kernel (I think it was sata.i).

When you see a line (when booting with slackware's cd) that says boot: put sata.i to make it look like:
Code:
boot: sata.i
Try also with scsi.i if the above doesn't work.
