Fatal Error Message During My Linux 1.2 Installation
Why do I keep getting a "Fatal Error: Cannot seek on disk
drive" message during the "Partition The Hard Drive" portion of the
installation of Debian version 1.2. When I "View the Partition Table"
this is the configuration of my Pentium200:
/dev/hda1 * 1 1 508 2048224 + 6 dos
2 509 509 620 451584 5 extended
5 509 509 620 378976 + 6 dos
6 603 603 620 72544 + 6 dos
When I purchased my computer in December of 1996, I had intended to
install Linux and the swap on my machine.I was hoping to change hda5 to
400K for the Linux partition and hda6 to 51.5K for the swap.
Is there a maximum limitation to the first partition (not the Linux
partition) that might preclude me from installing Linux at all? I
couldn't find any documentation supporting this notion.
Thank you very much.
