drive with a GUID Partition Table (GPT), and has trouble. Trying to use
fdisk will fail; it cannot handle the GPT, and exits with the message to use
"parted" None of the other partition editors like Gparted or Qparted will
work either -- only "parted" Using "parted" it is possible to use the
"msdos" option to overwrite the GPT with a standard MBR. Then you can use
fdisk to partition your drive and debian should install fine. I was able to
get my Seagate FreeAgent 500 GB drive running with the nslu2 that way.
