    Partitioning Problems


    When i install and have to partition, whether i choose automatic or druid (i havent tried fdisk, it said its for 'experts', so i stayed away ) no matter what i try to do, i always end up with a 'could not allocate partitions as primary partitions'.

    Any help would be appreciated, i got 2 hard drives, one with 5gb free, the other with 217mb free, i chose personal or whatever it is, and it is supposed to come to about 1.2gb when installed so i must have enough space.

    You need to leave the space you want linux on as 'unallocated' at least that's the easiest way to do it.
    You may not have enough space. I don't know where you got the 1.2 GB figure from but that seems really small.
