did you select an existing partition to mount that wasn't properly formatted?
Comment 3 solarguy 2001-09-09 11:06:08 EDT
I let disk druid do the partioning.  I started with a HD that had another os on it, formatted it and then started the Linux install.  I first installed the 
server setup & then wiped the hd & am trying to install the workstation.  Should I do the partioning myself?  If so, what setting should i apply.  The hd 
is 6gb & will only have the linux os on it.
Comment 4 solarguy 2001-09-10 08:25:01 EDT
Problem resolved!!  After trying the install a couple of more times.  I kept 
getting an error message about an hda failure.  After further digging, I found 
that I needed to do a low level re-format & that solved the problem.  I have 
been able to Linux install.  Thanks for you help.
