cfdisk problem during installation
Friends, a question:
During installation of Debian Linux 1.3, I am getting the following error
message when the installation software tries to partition my hard drive:
FATAL ERROR: Bad primary partition
Press any key to exit fdisk
I understand that this error message might result from incorrect geometry
information (I have an IDE drive). But, I am specifying the geometry by
at the boot: prompt (I got the cylinders, heads, and sectors-per-track
using Norton Disk Doctor).
>From the cfdisk manual page, it seems like I might be able to get around
the problem using the -z option to force cfdisk to ignore my current
partition table. Is there a way I can use the -z option during installation?
Have I missed something else??
