#1. Ok I'm not getting very far. First of all I want to make sure I am
using the right disk. I have Debian 2.0 official, both the Binary and
Source disks say the same thing when I boot them up and try to install
from cdrom. Can you use either, or? I went through the steps and
everything seemed to go ok until I tried to partion the drive. I
followed the instructions in the book. I select [New] and [Primary]
then I can't change the size of the partion, it lets me make a 6149.89
MB partion but then can't go on to make a swap partion. The 6149.89 MB
is my whole HD so maybe that is why I can't make another. At any rate I
noticed the numbers lock isn't on and the numbers just don't work. I
entered [US] when choosing a keyboard.
#2. While I'm at it. I have a blank 6.4 gigabyte 2nd IDE HD that I am
trying to install Debian on. Most of the literature I have read talks
about partioning in limited space. I was thinking I could make the 1st
partion (root) 1000 MB and the swap 100 MB, I have 64 MB Ram. Does this
sound reasonable? Will that make the rest of the HD dead space?
