    HD partitioning woes


    Used cfdisk to create hda as below

    hda1 boot linux 83 32Mb
    hda2 linux swap 82 512Mb
    hda3 / linux 83 remainder up to the hd capacity

    However when I try and install Slackware 9.1 it detects both hda1 & 2 as linux swap and insists on mounting and enabling them as swap.

    Any ideas what's up?

    Did you reboot after changing the partition table if you did? And double check its type linux thats all i can think of.

    That could be it! Knoppix/Debian is on hda now, perhaps I should bung Slack back on hdb.
