Hello,
I've got a new dell inspiron 9400 with windows installed on it, i've installed fedora 6 on it... srunk the windows partition to 30G and installed fedora on a new partition of 30G I don'r recall deleting the Dell rescue partition but it seems to have gone anyways... I was planning to put Ubuntu on the remaining part of the disk but the installation program does not recognise the partitions on the disk... Also gparted does not recognize these partitions and parted gives me "Error: Can't have overlapping partitions." when I ask it to 'print all'...
the output of fdisk -l /dev/sda gives:
Disk /dev/sda: 100.0 GB, 100030242816 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 12161 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

does somebody have a clue what is going wrong here??
