i dont know how to partition for corel linux...even with p. magic 5..i set extended logical partition and swap partition with pm5 added it to my beos boot manager after install...then it said no boot signatures found for linux..im clueless..i added all three partitions to my boot manager because i didnt know which one to pick. i noticed with a different partition set up earlier windows was real slow..i guess i need a small boot partition 1 meg..dont know how to do it..and with the linux advanced partition set up it said no root partition found????

Repartition your hard drive and do the following:
Lets suppose your hard drive is hda and your windows partition is hda1.
If this is your configuration there is no need to create an extended partition.
Use Linux fdisk to create three primary partitions like this:
hda2 , Linux Native , mounted as /boot (it must be small)
hda3 , Linux Swap (maximum 128MB)
hda4 , Linux Native , mounted as /
If this doesn't work please post how you have partitioned your hard drives.
