Help: installing red hat 4.2 hard drive/zip problems

Post by jebel » Tue, 14 Jul 1998 04:00:00

Here's the problem.  When I start the red hat installation to install from
the cd-rom, it goes fine until I get to the partitioning part.  At that
point the program only seems to recognize my zip drive as /dev/hdc and will
only run fdisk on it via the edit command on that menu.  I have a 6.4 gig
hard drive put into 4 partitions: 1 2.1 gig that is FAT16 and contains
win95, a 2nd 2.1 gig that is fat16 and is a logical drive and a 3rd 2.1 gig
partition that used to be a logical drive until I deleted it to make room.
I also have a 4th partition that is ~70 megs that is within the first 1024
cylinders.  I would welcome any suggestions on what I have done wrong and
what I can do to make them right again.

1. Help installing Red Hat 4.2 on Win95 and zip disk system

I'm trying to install Red Hat 4.2 on my system, which has a zip drive and a
6.4 gig HD partitioned into 3 equal 2.1 gig drives.  When I run the install
software that comes with Red Hat and I get to the disk partitioning step, it
says that my only disk is the zip drive.  Do I need to eliminate one of the
DOS partitions and then will the program say that I have a hard drive? Or do
I need to do something else?

Thanks for any help,
Jeff Bell
