"You do not have permission to write to partition table?" as root?
OK, I am lost on this one totally! I resized my 250 gig hdd with partition magic 8 so that I could have my slack back since my other pc went and took a pot on me. Well, being over ten years of age, sometimes they do this! Anywho, my condition is this, I ran magic, set up a partition for slackware, along with it's slack, and a very small amount more just for added measure! Now, I pop the first Slack cd in, run through the basics, get down to sign in as root, I do so!, then it is either do fdisk, cfdisk, or setup, if the disk is formatted in which I have found a way to do that and that has added another problem I will address on another topic! for now to stay on this one if you go fdisk or cfdisk it gives me error: you do not have permission to access drive; you do not have write access! Without write access, I cannott install my Slackware, and I NEED MY SLACKWARE PEOPLE, i am losing it~~~~!!!!!!
