Installing slackware...

I need to install slackware 9.1 on my p1 233mhz with 2x 1gb hd

When I've created my partition with CFDISK=
Primary:ext3 ~800mb
Logical: swap ~200mb

Logical: ext3 1000mb

but when I quit CFDISK and I re-enter, partition are separated by default

primary ext3 ~500mb
logical swap ~100mb
logical ext3 ~400mb

primary ext3 ~500mb
logical swap ~100mb
logical ext3 ~400mb

So I don't have enough memory when I install slacky...

Why I can't separate 1-800mb/200mb 2-1g

that last sentence made no sense to me personally, you used too many numbers
that through me off, sorry :S, but what i will ask about your attempt at doing this is
are you pressing :
to write the partition table after you setup the partitions the way you want it ? its the
last option on the bottom of the screen in cfdisk out of the 9 options ... or are you
just simply going to quit when your done setting it uP ?
