I seem to be stuck at the disk partitioning part of the install
using the Redhat 6.1 cd. What seems to be happening is
that Disk Druid is adding the partitions as primary partitions.
In my past experience with other systems, Disk Druid adds
additional partitions as logical partition, I think. Not primary ones.
I can't see where there is an option to add partitions as
logical / extended partitions. At one point it said "No free
Primary Partitions". This was where I wanted to create 4 or
more partitions. When I tried to set up only a "/" and a "swap"
partition, it said " Not enough space"
I upgraded my Gateway 486 by adding a Promise Drivemax
card to extend the bios to allow up 128 GB hard drives. I added
a 15 GB IBM 7200 rpm hard drive. So far I was able to install
Win95 C on the system without problems and Windows
recognized all the hard drive space. I am using about 8 GB for
Win95 as 4 partitions. (Win c:, d:, e:, f:) (Linux: hda1, hda5, hda6,
The way it appears now, either there is a problem with Disk Druid,
in which case maybe it's possible to use Linux FDISK or the like,
or the Promise Drivemax does not work with Linux.
