Primary Partitions with fdisk
Here is my http://img83.imageshack.us/img83/981...sectors9lt.png, so that you can help me better.
I'm trying to use fdisk, but it's not creating the final partition for some reason.
I deleted the last three partitions (/dev/hda3, /dev/hda4, /dev/hda5). I then proceeded to create new partitions, but it stopped me after the fourth primary partition was made. I already have two primary partitions from my Windows installation.
So I tried to make an extended, but then it tells me to delete a partition before I can make an extended one. When I deleted the swap partition, however, it only let the extended partition be 512MB. I don't know why this is, but when I tried to make it larger, it says "value out of range".
I got the boot partition listed correctly, and the swap partition, but the ROOT partition is not working right. The handbook tells me to hit enter twice, but this results in a very small partition. I did 'v', and it says that there are a lot of sectors left (like 50 million or something). I want to use them up in the root partition, but it's not working - I already have 4 primary partitions. There is no way that I'm deleting any Windows partitions.
Help! I am very confused :(
