    Hi All,

    partition's are NTFS.

    When I start installing Linux It is not recognising the Hard disk.

    Please guide me for installation of linux.

    Linux won't overwrite your windows partitions. If the partition
    your going to use for linux is empty then you need to delete the
    partition so it is free disk space. You will make all linux
    partitions during the installation.

    BTW Since you are new to linux I would recommend keeping it
    simple with only 3 partitions until you understand linux better.

    a "/" root partition
    a /home partition
    and a swap partition.
