Your turn now for some gauntlet picking up and a keystroke by keystroke
account. :)

There is no significant space available on the disk to install to. The
only way to get an OS on it is to use the existing partition(s).

Please detail what you see on the screen when the 'Partition disks' page
comes up. Now describe how you go about getting a / and /home partition
(swap is of no importance here). A framework which might help you in an
adequate description was posted earlier.
