    Installing Phlak on HD


    Hey guys love the site! I am dual booting with ubuntu and xp, and I am starting to love linux! Heres my problem I got to boot off the phlak 0.3 cd but when I right click on the desktop and click install to hard disk on the second step where you choose the partitioner and the hardrive, there are no choices for hard drives! Hence: i can't continue with the install. I even made a 15gig partition called PHLAK in ext3 (or something like that) format with windows (partitionmagic), could someone help me get phlak installed so I can tripple boot!?!?!? Thanks in advance
    I love the site.

    I have heard that PM will sometimes hide the partitions(I am clueless as to why this feature exists).
    But make sure that the partition is not hidden.
    You should also just make it free space, let the phlak partitioner see that.

    I made it free space and it still doesn't recognize anything.

    I pretty sure Phlak is just a liveCD distro...unlike Ubuntu which works as a live CD and you can install it to your HDD...*shrugs* I could be wrong though.
