Is WinXP still there?Originally Posted by harishbayyavarapu
I am going to take a wild stab and assume you are running KDE (?)
Try to find a program called KDiskFree - under the K Menu - under System.
This will show your partitions in a safe way.
If you are not useing KDE get a root terminal and type
# /sbin/fdisk -l /dev/hda Disk /dev/hda: 80.0 GB, 80026361856 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 9729 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 1 1530 12289693+ 83 Linux /dev/hda2 1531 2965 11526637+ 83 Linux /dev/hda3 2966 3209 1953125+ 82 Linux swap /dev/hda4 3209 9730 52381256 5 Extended /dev/hda5 * 3209 4080 7003080+ 83 Linux /dev/hda6 4342 9729 43279078+ 83 Linux /dev/hda7 4081 4341 2096451 83 Linux
post that info to give us a clue - also do you have more than one HD? Is the windows partition on the same drive as the Linux partition?
