I am dual booting my 1 hard drive system and I first loaded RH6.0 and used
the fdisk utility instead of Disk Druid to partition my hard drive. While
using the fdisk (on the RD installation) program I made myself an partition
table that looks like this (I'm only including the information that pertains
Mount Point Device Boot ID System
/boot /tmp/hde1 83 Linux Native
/tmp/hde2 85 Linux Extended
Windows C: /tmp/hde3 b Win95 FAT
Windows D: /tmp/hde4 b Win95 FAT
My question is this:
After I installed Linux I rebooted my system and proceeded to install
Win98 on hde3. Win98 setup said that the C drive was not formatted
and that I'd need to do this. So I went ahead and had it format my C
and D drive. Then after all of this, it came up with the following error
Windoze files cannot be installed on your hard disk because the format of
drive C is incompatible with Win98. You can have setup reformat drive
C for you, or your can quit setup now and reformat drive C yourself.
I have two idea why I got this message:
1) I didn't define the partition type correctly for my two primary Windoze
partition. Should I have made them Win95 FAT32 (LBA)? Does the fdisk utility
in the RH6.0 installation support Win98? I think Win95 FAT32 should work for
a Win98 installation.
2) I need to run the dos fdisk utility and delete those two primary Windoze
partitions and let the dos fdisk utility create them.
Thanks for any ideas.
