Hi Alan,

Some more information would be useful, did you already try to boot from
the first CD? The installation process will give you the opportunity to
partition your hard drive (With cfdisk, if that's still true...).
As Maurits correctly points out, ext3 is a good default choice. Apart
from that, it doesn't matter which of the two (fdisk, cfdisk) you use to
partition your disk.
