Installing to Hard Drive
I've had Slackware installed on an old machine for about 10 months or so but haven't used it that much.
I'm just wanting to install it on my new box so I can use it a bit more. When it comes to partitioning, I type cfdisk to partition. However, it doesn't seem to partition the hard disk - it tried to partition the DVD for some reason? I've got a 750GB SATA HD and IDE Asus DVD RW Lightscribe Drive.
Not sure what's wrong? Do I need to enter extra parameters on starting up?
Thanks very, very much!
The issue is probably that you have an IDE DVD and a SATA harddisk. Cfdisk without arguments falls back to the default value of /dev/hda. Which in your setup is your DVD. It's in the man page
And if it's true
cfisk /dev/sdaCan't tell an OS by it's GUI
