Installation error Occured
Ext3: / 8Gig
ext3: /boot 8Gig
Swap: swap 512M
So im not sure if I had created the partitions correctly or what not. During my installation I received an error "Package NetworkManager was not found on the medium" but I did a check on the disk to make sure there weren't any problems and it came out clean. Im completely lost as what to do now . Btw im using openSUSE.
Well partitions are correct, it will not give you any problems. The problem is in your CD/DVD. It is lacking some packages. Just try with some other CD/DVD. Though i would not recommend you such type of partitions. As it is always better /secure to create /home, /usr partitions atleast. Your partitions should be like this:- (Minimum Recomended)
/ 2GB -- It contains your /etc, /sbin, /bin known for commands.
/boot 500MB -- Contains All booting related stuff i.e kernel, initrd.
/usr 4GB -- Every application that you select goes here.
/home 500MB -- Contains User related info.
If you have ample of space left still, make your /usr and /home with larger space as per your convinience.
awesome thank you, i mean i'll try to re download the suse cd's again but if that doesn't work I'll switch to ubunt or kubunt. the partitions i don't have a problem with, those are easy enough to change thank you this helps alot.

Just if you want to goin for Ubuntu. Check your hardware specs compatibility with Ubuntu hardware Support list, so that you can avoid hardware issues(if any). see below link-->
Actual space used by /boot partition is 30-60MB only. Its recommended to allocate not more that 102MB space.
I have never created separate /boot partition and there is no need of it unless you are using LVMs.

Yeah, I don't usually create a /boot partition either. On those occasions that I have made one, I only used 50 MB, which was more than enough. I think those extra GBs would be better used perhaps on a /home partition. Again, just my opinion.oz
No, its no problem I have a 200g hd, I figured I had enough to spare . I just need a great *nix working environment so that I may program and have a clean running system with a minimal install. All my hardware is compatible with unbuntu, =). This ubuntu is only 699megs, is it only one cd? If it is I hope it has what I need.
Heys guys, im under a live cd of mandriva, the ubuntu didnt work that well, now im on to distro number 3. I tried running mandrive from the console while the drive was mounted and consol output this error.
[root@localhost guest]# draklive-install
mount: /dev/sda5 already mounted or /tmp/tmp_fs_df busy
mount: /dev/sda6 already mounted or /tmp/tmp_fs_df busy

umount: /dev/sda10: not mounted
umount: /dev/sda11: not mounted

/dev/sda7 is apparently in use by the system; mke2fs forced anyway.
/dev/sda7: Device or resource busy while setting up superblock

I reparted my drive to:
See the recomended partition space for /usr. It should be atleast 4GB -- Every application or packages are installed in /usr.
Your /usr partitions is way to low for installation. Reinstall the system with appropraite partitions. Make sure your swap should be 1.5 to 2 times grater than your onboard RAM.
