Re: [LINUX_Newbies] Stuck at first base
- I haven't used Caldera, but if you boot from the Linux cdrom you should get an option to put the os in one of the partitions and even delete/create any petitions... i use red hat 6.2 which does so during installation ( using disk druid... i think). i have a 4.3 gb hard disk with Linux and win98 installed.../ 128 MB for root *required... can be larger and the only partition where Linux files are installed/tmp 128 MB for temp/home 1024 MB for home/usr 1024 MB for user/swap 256 MB Linux swap *requiredwin98 remaining----- Original Message -----From: Nigel FitchardSent: Sunday, December 31, 2000 11:38 PMSubject: [LINUX_Newbies] Stuck at first baseOK, I admit it - I fell at the first hurdle.
I wanted to learn Linux, so I went and bought a book which includes a
Caldera OpenLinux 2.3 CD. I took my son's Windows 98 PC (he got a
replacement for Christmas) and fdisked the HDD into oblivion.
Ran fips from the Linux CD and it errored with "No primary
partition". Oops !
So, would some kind soul please advise how I set up my Linux
partitions from scratch ? Is there another utility I need to get
hold of ?
Thanks and regards
