Hi - I've been preparing my computer to install RedHat Linux alongside Windows Me, and i'm having some problems repartitioning.

At the moment my 40Gb hard drive has one huge partition with Windows in it.
I want to shrink this partition to 35Gb and set up a 5Gb partition on the end for Linux.
I have been trying to use FIPS (2.0) to do this, but it won't work.
I've run scandisk from inside windows, and defragmented my hard drive.
I then run fips from a boot floppy, but it exits whilst checcking my boot sector with the error message:

Error: Number of sectors (long) does not match partition info:
80019702 instead of 80035767

The number of sectors in the partition table must match the number of
sectors in the boot sector

I have the full fips log file if anyone needs to see it.
Please help me with this - i'm totally stumped!
