    Can't find unpartitioned space?


    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and to slackware. I've been trying to install it on my Dell Latitude D630 as part of a multiboot, but it's not finding the unpartioned space I've left for it when I use cfdisk. I'm wondering if if it can't see the hard drive at all. Has anyone else encountered this problem before?

    Welcome to the forums!

    One easy way to get your partitioning done is to use the Parted Magic LiveCD. Then when you go to install Linux, tell the installer to use the partitions that you've already created.

    What errors are you getting when you try to install Linux?

    Also, if you'll boot with the Parted Magic disk and then go to a terminal and run the following command and post the output, someone may be able to help:

    Code:
    fdisk -l
