earlier also i had put a post here to get some help installing linux on my system
i tried many flavours of linux like, xandross, ubantu etc.
i have a SATA harddisk with XP running on it.
the problem i face is that the hard disk is not detected by the linux os while installing.
where does the problem lies??
do i need SATA drivers for the installation. what type of partition is to be made on the harddrive to install linux on it?
the partition details of my harddisk.
a 80 gb SATA drive with four NTFS partitions.
one primary partition with xp installed on it.
the extended partition is devided in 3 other & it also has 10 gb free space on which i was trying to install linux.
