RE: Partition boot disk when installing Fedora Core 4



Hi, Steve

I fixed the problem. The disk had Windows 2000 installed. When I
installed Fedora Core 4, I never powered off the system. After I powered
the system off, it worked fine although I chose "wipe out all partitions
on the system" option. Thanks.

How did it complain ? (hint - error messages go a long way toward
explaining things if you decide to post them)
