I am trying to install Redhat 7.1 on my machine, but I am having problems with Disk Druid.
The hd is a maxtor 20Gb, with 2048 Cylinders.
I can set up swap, fine for a while.
Then I can set up /home, stays fine.
Then when I want to set up /, it tells me that there is a problem as '/ is 1024'.
I read the Redhat guide, and it says that if want to set up a / partition and use the remaining disk space
I have to set up a /boot partition of at least 16mb, which I always do anyway.
Now, when I have done this two things happen.
The space I allocated for swap is removed, and I am told that there is no
remaining free primary...
The /boot section is not allocated either and complains about the disk having more than 1024 cylinders.
But when the two above things have happened, / has been successfully alocated???
The other two partitions on the disk are NTFS for a win2k install.
Does anybody know what is happening, and how I can make it stop bugging the crap out
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
