Installation Partition

This is a real simple question (I am new to UNIX)

How do I install FreeBSD 2.2.5 to a partition within the extended

In the FDisk Editor, I see the reference to my extended partition.
However, I can't "get into" it to select the free space to create a
FreeBSD native partition.

Thanks for any help,



1. valid installation partition?

I am installing linux on a friend's computer and had two questions I was
hoping somebody could answer.  The first question is if it is possible
to put all of the Linux files on a different physical drive, in my case,
I have the three linux partitions (root,swap, and boot) all on the slave
drive and was wondering if this would work.  My second question is, with
my previous setup, is it possible to use the Windows 2k boot loader to
load Linux in this configuration?  Thanks for any help!
