PageMaker 5.0 install

When attempting to install PageMaker 5.0 I receive an error message that the program cannot recognize my hard drive. Under File Manager I can see the various directories but it shows space used and free space at 0kb, even though I have well over 2gb free space on C: and around 900mb on D: (have tried to install it on both drives). How can I install this program?

Thanks in Advance,

BRW

Write some "junk" files onto your 'C:' drive,
until you have *LESS* than 2GB available,
which should avoid any problems in the "installer".

P.S. SENTIONO -- the computer wouldn't be bootable
if the new IDEDASD driver was needed and had *NOT*
been installed.  So, given that this computer *IS*
running, the software is either "unneeded" or "already installed".

Have you applied the updated idedasd? (I assume your hd is IDE). The old IDE driver has problem in detecting harddrives that are >4 Gb.
