What does the partition table of your system look like?
Comment 3 Will Deane 2002-08-13 02:48:26 EDT

I've now got my system working be useing FDISK to create partitions but when i 
had the problem I had a 6GB primary partition at the beginning of the drive 
followed by a 12GB Primary partition, there was then free space and then an 8GB 
Partition. The first two Partitions are NTFS5 created by Win2k and the last 
partition was unformated. After i had problems i deleted the last partition 
leaving only the 2 primary NTFS partitions but still had the same error.

Without more info I can't really pursue this report since we have not ever
encountered this situation.

If you have a similar issue in the future and can give us a partition table
listing please feel free to reopen this issue.
