Re: Re: help required for installation of red hat 6.2

hi manish
firstly you need to understand in win format there one primary partition
which called c:\ one extended partion on which logical drives are made in
your case d: e: f:
while installing linux you require whole extended partition. means all you
drive-data except c:\ will be lost
you'll have to create a linux partion from the extended partition and rest
fat partition usin using linux fdisk or disk druid.
then again reformat the other dos partition you made in diskdruid.
take care
