Re: installing debian

-No, when looking at the partition table, no extended partitions exist

-The original partition was Dos. When the rescue floppy could not
repartition, I deleted   it.  The rescue floppy sill cannot partition.

-The rescue floppy runs a menu, this menu runs down steps to
partitioning, configuring, etc. When the step to partition the hard drive
is executed, It tells me:

cfdisk has failed to repartition. I may wipe out your partition table and
run cfdisk again.

If i answer yes, the same thing will happen when trying to repartition.
If no, I am unable to advance.
