I'm installing linux on a 1.6G IDE hd with Win95 on the first 980M partition.  I know this question has been asked and answered already but the answer was insufficient, because I am using RedHat 4.0.  After I create 1 500M linux native partition and 1 16M linux swap partition and proceed to the next step in the install one of the virtual terminals has this message

 "you must set heads sectors and cylinders.  you can do this from the extra menu.  warning:  invalid flag 0000 of partition table 4 will be corrected by w(rite)"

And after completing the entire install on rebooting
I get this error:  Invalid partition table

I've tried just about everything I can think of a good answer to this question would be very much appreciated.

Your primary Linux partition must end before cylinder 1023 of your hard drive.  You can use a program called Partition Magic to move your partitions without data loss or just use fdisk and start from scratch.
