i want to install Linux 8.0 .

i have a 80GB harddisk & win200Pro , win2000Advsvr & win98 install on it.

Win98 on primary partition & rest are on extended logical partitions.

i made a 3gb partition for Linux to install.

But while i install it in the begning it shows error related harddisk that "Inconsitent BIOS geometry but hereis not the case ,LBA recommended"

when i set the harddisk mode to LBA thee problem persist the same & show thw same message.

I can run the installation by ignoring the message. after that in DiskDruid dialogbox it shows some extra information with parttion information.

I formatted my whole harddisk but the problem is same.

Is linux support 80GB harddisk?

Please give me the solution of this problem

please help

Hello BuntyIndia,
Try this one.
make 3 or 5GB unpartitioned space on your hard disk, and install again linux, because it automatically covers the unpartitioned space on hard disk.
hope it will help,
