Partitioning on linux 6.x
Posted on 2001-08-28
I'm trying to install linux 6.1 on a machine with 38GB hard disk. Windows98 is already there in the primary partition of 26GB.
I had deleted the extended partition (drive d) of 12 GB and tried to install linux. While tryin to partition this previously extended partition by "disk druid" I get:
"partition too big" for "/" and "/boot" filesystems and the allocation is unsuccesful.
I have done similar operation succesfully for a hard disk of 6 GB with windows95 on the 3 GB primary partition.
Is there a problem of original partitioning for windows98 here?
What could be the possible solutions to this?
