I have a P75 (NEC Ready 7022) my bios says that I have 2105 cylinders, but fdisk on Linux and Dos both only show 526. I need to know how to get fdisk to recognize cylinders 527 -2105.  I have over 300 megs left on my hard drive, but I am only able to use 93 of it for Linux partitions. I need to know how to get to the other 200 megs of space I have on my hard drive. Also, slackware is not finding my CD rom drive. Do I have to install Linux on my hard drive and then install it from there? Please help me if you can, I am very anxious to get started with Linux.

Your Linux root partition must start before cylinder 1024. Choose the boot image for your CD. Look at README file in bootdisks directory in your Slackware distribution.
