About the partition when install redhat 6.0.

Hi, Experts,

I have a 20G harddisk. Now Only have a primary partition in the
first 2G, which is used in WINDOWS 98 FAT32.

I want to use the next 3G space to Linux and use the rest to the
Extend DOS partition for WINDOWS98 FAT32.  I don't want to
install the linux in the same Extend Partition with DOS. How can I
do?

I read the redhat install guide books, and it is said that the LINUX
need 3 partition, one for swap, one for boot, and the other for root.
But the max partition for the one physicial harddisk is 4, how can
I do?

Thanks very much.

not true, since the logical extended partition can hold any number of partitions. And you do not need three partitions, you CAN work with a single, but two is useful ( / and swap)

But you need UNPARTITIONED space for linux.

So install win98 (which you have done)

Then install linux, using linux fdisk to create the partitions for linux. after linux is set up, create an extended partition for the rest of the space.
