Hi,

I am trying to install two OS (Fedora 8 and Windows XP) on 40G disk. First, I installed XP and then I try to install Fedora 8 on free space on selected drves but it said "it could not allocate requested partitions. Not enough space leftt create partition for /boot" Any ideas?

I would say

3 partitions

1 XP(20GB) 2 Linux(18GB) 3 linux swap(2GB)

When you install XP, make the 3 partitions but only install on the first.


I'm not sure how big swap partition you need.

Hello Zedde,

Most of the time XP does partition for me and then I use free space to install the Linux. What would be the best software for partition if I do not have the Partition Magic?

When you install XP, make the 3 partitions but only install on the first.
what do you mean?


Thanks

In the XP installation guide when you going to select where to install the OS
you can create partitions too.

I meant leav the other 2 partitions, you are going to install Linux on them
