      OK, 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
