don't know if this is the answer, but ...  From what I remember, you
can't boot to a partition over cylinder 1024 ...  Make sure that the
extended partition is under that ...

1. Help: Slackware 96 setup not recognizing native partition

I am trying to install the Slackware 96 version of Linux and have defined a
swap space that gets an error and when I try to run setup I get the following

Warning: ignoring extra data in partition table 5
Warning: invalid flag 0000 of partition table will be correct by write

Error: No Linux Native Partition

The install is on the second 1.5 Gig partition of a Western Digital drive
which is the slave IDE drive.  I do not want to install it on the master IDE

Any ideas?
