Re: Debian installation

Regarding the disk being too large, the partition that the system boots
from should be entirely within the low 1023 cylinders. I handled this by
creating a separate partition (about 40 MB) for "/", and a larger one for
"/usr". Other than that, the disk size is not a concern, and this is a
BIOS limitation, not a Linux one.

Regarding the overlap, show us your partition table.
