Re: trouble with install -- 64 bit, disk partitioner
Thanks for your help. In the end, i believe the problem was the RAID5 configuration that had been set up for windows. I used killdisk to scrub the hard drives, then was able to use gparted (which had hung previously) and then install debian. I'll reuse the disks with LVM and go to backups instead of RAID.

If that doesn't work, I think it might be worthwhile to get a copy of GParted (which you can also find on a Parted Magic disk). Download either one, run GParted and make a partition on your hard drive. Make it bootable.
Then try installing the Debian OS. (Both of the disks I mentioned are free downloads.)
