Re: partitions

michael napisał(a):

I'm not sure if I'm messed up here but all advice welcome:
used the WinXP setup CD to delete existing WinXP 32Gb partition, created 2 new 16Gb partitions, then made some spare space at end a new partition
too (it may have been 2 new partitions). WinXP installed okay into one
of the partitions (didn't create a
filesys on the others).

but then it seemed had to change from hda3 to hda6 to boot Debian and
then when do gpart/parted it gives a smaller no. of partitions than the XP setup made and has a couple with same starting
point (byte? cylinder?)....

I then deleted the new partitions (leaving WinXP in the new but smaller
partition) but still Debian (eg parted) only sees 3 partitions and two
of them start in same place.

Sorry for lack of details - will write them down and post later today

I'm not sure what is the problem in You're case. Below is my fdisk -l output to one of my discs, mayby it'll help You somehow.
dev             boot   start      end         Blocks      id   system

As You can see hda2 and hda5 start in the same "spot" and hda8 ends with the end of hda2. This is qiute normal, as the hda6-8 are the logical volumes of hda2 with is the extendet partition. hda 1,3,4 are primary partitions.
