    Set Disklabel on /dev/hda


    Hello all. Newbie with 1st time installation here. I am installing Puppy 4.0 on a freshly wiped HD. I have booted from the CD and have Puppy running live. I am at the point of partitioning the "unallocated space" using Gparted. When I highlight the unallocated space and click "New", I get the message "Set Disklabel on dev/hda". It says by default GParted creates an msdos label. Do I allow this and create this msdos label?

    That should work just fine and you can use Gparted to change the disk label any time you want.
