I do have a lot of partitions on my disk drives, mostly Fat32

Win2000 and Linux) boot system and I wonder if having a lot of
partitions might be confusing the install scripts?


You /did/ mean "NTFS," didn't you? And it's possible you've exceeded a
limitation of some kind that requires manual intervention. Since you've
brought it up, can you post details about your drives and partitioning
scheme?




Thanks again Carl for your suggestions... I haven't been able to work much on this installation problem as I had to work long and late yesterday... Anywise here is the FDISK info on my disk drives that you requested.... And yes I did mean NTFS, that was a typo error....
