Hello all!

Tried installing SuSE10 (from the ISO's at
But it fails on the partitoning.
It used to be a OsX on it, but the company i got it from had erased it.
So i booted it up on the first CD, and told it to erase all partitions and use
the whole disk for linux.

It crashed yelling about not being able to create partition.
I rebooted into rescue mode and ran fdisk

" There is a valid Mac label on this disk.
Unfortunately Linux cannot handle these
disks at the moment. Nevertheless some
1. fdisk will destroy its contents on write
2. Be sure that this disk in NOT a still vital
part of a volume group. (Otherwise you may
erase the other disks as well. if unmirrored)"

Google suggests mac-fdisk. But the cd doesnt seem to have that.

Bug or feature?
How do i proceed?
