    Partition Problem....

    Hi all im new here and am not sure is there is a way to fix my problem but here it goes... lol

    Ok iw ant to install Linux but keep windows, so i need to create some unpartitioned space..

    but my windows XP in on a seperat partition from my other stuff.... have no clue why, thats just how my comp came :blink:

    so i was wundering if there was anyother way i could create some unpartitioned space for linux.

    i have a 200gb HHD so i can spare as much as needed basicaly lol

    i also have tryed useing Partition Magic 8.0 but when i try to run it i get an error saying "Init Failed: Error 117, Partition's drive letter cannot be identified"

    I hope some one can help me as i would really like to try out linux for the first time!!

    You will need to resize the Winblows partitions to make space to load Linux
    on. You may want to use a live linux CD to test drive, just go to

    and have a good time shopping.
    Research, research, research before you walk the plank.
