In my system I proceeded to install ubuntu 5.10 in a 10gb FAT32 partition which is empty (no data).The installer proceeded upto Parition disk stage.
I Choose Manually edit partition table option.
The next screen showed the existing
IDE1 Master (hda)- 40 gb ............
It did not list the already existing
ext3(MDK) and swap(10)
partitions. I was a little scared. So I stopped proceeding furhter and rebooted.
I did expect that will list all the existing partitions in the hdd So that I can choose the empty fat partition and create ext3 file system with / mount point to proceed the installation.
Will it list the partitions if I select the HDD listed and enter once again? Should I delete FAT32 partition first before creating ext3?
