Description louis.aucoin 1999-10-21 17:30:38 EDT
It appears that by default an extended partition is created
encompassing what remains of the drive and everything gets
shoved into that when using what I assume to be disk druid
via the graphical interface. This does not appear to be
useful when attempting to configure a multiboot machine
with a windoz product on another partition.
Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-10-22 10:03:59 EDT
The default behavior of Disk Druid is to do what you describe unless
there are partitions which already exist (say you already have Windoze
installed)  If you would like to customize your disk partitioning,
then you will want to run the installer in expert mode (type "expert"
at the boot prompt) and use fdisk to partition the drive(s)
