I'm skeptical if I can partition my hd.
I have a Compaq Presario V2000, and want to install Ubuntu on it. I booted from knoppix 4.0.2 and started QTParted (v0.4.4). There are two partitions: hdc (a recovery) and hda (Windows) . When I selected hda for qtparted to look at, it said my used space was 'N/A'. I didn't know if that means that qtparted was for some reason having trouble reading the ntfs partition. Since I didn't know, I didn't do any repartitioning yet. (I was going to show a pic of what I saw, but I don't know how.)
