I am trying to install Red hat Linux 8.0 on Sony's PCG-Z1P Notebook.
However I am having problems creating partitions.
With Disk Druid, from the drive rectangular display, I do not even see the
current NTFS partitions from Windows XP.
Anyway I tried to create a "/boot" partition, and I get an error message:
"Could not allocate requested partitions: partitioning failed:
Could not allocate partitions as primary partitions" ?
What is the issue here ?
On my PC I can see the Windows partitions from Disk Druid, and can
successfully create Linux partitions ?
Should I create the recommended "/", "/boot", "/usr" etc ... using partition
magic may be ? But then will the install CDs work and skip partition part of
the install ?
