It's difficult to help whenthe question is so vague; exactly what
happens when you try to partition the drive?  Do you get an error
message?  What does that message say?

sometimes win95 uses the win32 filesystem, which is different from the
msdos-fat filesystem. fips can't handle the win32 stuff

i'm truing to install linux on a friends pc but fips refuses to
partition the win95 drive. i've done all of the usual defrag stuff.
the fips executable is from redhat 4.0. is it out of date or is it
another problem?
