I tried to install Red Hat 6.1 on my machine, but encountered the
error "Boot Partition too big" when I tried to set up a Linux Native
partition. The following is my configuration:
Win98SE with one 13GB harddrive partitioned into C (formatted as FAT32)
and D drives. The primary C drive has about 10.5G, and the extension
drive D has about 2.5G.
I got the Red Hat 6.1 CD that came with the book, "Secrets of Red Hat
Linux". The following is the procedure I did during installation
before I got the error message:
1. Deleted the D drive
2. Added a Linux partition with "/" as mount.
3. Enter 2.5G - 128M (the size of the RAM on my machine) as the size.
4. Click OK and I got the error message.
