I took a novell class a few years ago, and got a 3 user license and Netwrae 5 software. I am playing around with it, or would like to, and am having trouble with the fdisk. It says that I can boot off of the user license cd and use the DOS 7 commands. I can boot from the cd fine. I do FDISK, and delete the primary partition and create a new one. They suggest at least 50m, but prefereably more. It will not let me go any higher than 31.3 mb. Am I doing something wrong, and/or overlooking something?

Thanks for the help guys,

Here is a little bit more info, in case it helps. While sitting at the menu, with the options to:

1 Create Partition
2 Delete partition
3 Select Bootable partition
4 Select alternate fixed disk

above that it says: Partitions on 1st hard disk (31.3 Mb, 4 cylindars):

I tried another machine, to see if maybe the pc was the cause, and I am having the same issue with the second one.

Hello P51, just a question, if I may ? Have you tried clearing the MBR prior to your partition ?

Roach, no I have not. How might I go about doing that? I have tried re-writing the MBR, off of the main FDISK menu, and it errors out, unseccessful.
