hello, i have one query..... i want to create linux partition on the hard disk of a compaq laptop (compaq pressario 2214). currently it has a single partition of 38GB. i used partition magic v8 for resizing partition but, it exits with error code 983. Error 983: "Too many errors found, process halted" The support site says this * In Windows 9x/Me, run ScanDisk. * In Windows NT/2000/XP, run CHKDSK /F but, i just want to know first that is it possible to create more than one partitions on that laptop? has anybody tried successfully?
