Re: Help: Linux Installation!!!



How did you check your space?
at the root prompt, ending with a #, give the command:
df -h
and if you still do not know where your space is, do a fdisk /dev/hda 
and once inside fdisk, do p and enter.
It will show you all your partitions, so you will be able to see where 
your
space has gone to.
