deltree
Hey guys,
I DLed Red Hat's Fedora Core 4 and booted the DVD, no problems at all. When I had the partitioning options, I chose the ''Keep all partitions and use only existing free space.'', since I still want to use Windows XP. Unfortunately I got an error message which I have no idea how to resolve: ''Partitioning failed: Could not allocate partition as primary partitions.'' And I haven't defined the ''Root Partition''.
I'm not sure of what to do, afraid to feck it up so I hope you can help me.

Thank you,

Deltree

Do you know how your drive is partitioned?
Do you have any free unallocated space?

As far as I know, I have only 1 partition for my Windows XP. I want to Dual-Boot FC with XP. Now I want to know how I can configure this in the installation, or any other way. Perhaps with disk druid perhaps?
/me is a Linux-n00b

You will need to resize your existing partiton in order to create some free space. Besides Partition Magic here some links to accomplish the task. Be sure to back up all important data stored on the disk just in case something happens.
