    Question disk partitioning?!!?!? fedora core 5 help!


    i need to partition my hard drive, and for some reason the onbaord partitioner included with Fedora COre 5 doesn't work... all automatics except write ovver tried, and i have 23 free Gbs of space,.. the other 17 has windows and other crap which i need to keep and beable to dual boot
    it give me the error:
    Could not allocate requested partitions
    partitioning failed:
    Could not allocate partition as primary partitions

    then is goes

    YOu have not defined a root partition (/) which is required for installation of Fedora Core to continue

    so i dunno whats up with that if you do that would be great to enlighten me but right now i am looking for a 3rd part partitioning software that is FREE for partitions so i can try to preformat then install.
    if you could provide me with names or links that would be :tup:
    or if you know why FC5 is being gay with its Disk Druid and Anaconda then that would be uber too
    thanks

    Sounds as if you don't know how to use the Fedora partitioner imho. Nothing wrong with that. If you have a Knoppix CD (with qtparted included) or e.g. a gparted-live CD, you could use them for performing the partitioning. Links are available at www.distrowatch.com
