    Creating partitions will be one step you come to when installing Linux from
    the CDs.

    You will be give the choice to
    1) have Linux create the partitions automatically;
    2) specify partitions yourself.

    What distro do you have?

    Always use the OS's tools to create and format media. Having a free
    unformated partition available prior to install makes it go eaiser.
    The partition phase will let you delete partitions and then allow you
    to create what you like.

    Please read http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

    It always helps if you provide some basic system information and what
    you are having questions/problems when you post questions to the
    news groups.

    That info helps us to provide better examples/responses.

    Which window manager/desktop environment,
    they have different icons and file access locations.

    There are several "linuxes": Red Hat, Slackware, SuSE, Debian, Mandrake,
    Caldera, Corel, Yellow Lab, Black Lab, WinLinux, PhatLinux, Linux On A
    Floppy, slinux, Trinux, Peanut and
    (Rock, Armed, Stampede, Tiny. Power, Coyote) Linux, to name a few.

    Always provide what distro and release level you are using
    when you post questions (Redhat 6.1, Suse 5.0, Mandrake 8.2,...).

    Different distros have different commands, files, and links to files,
    pacakges and package/software managers.
    Even happens between release levels of the same distribution.

    Internet connection problem (ISP, cable, adsl, PPPoE, LAN, dialup, eth0. USB..)

    If dhcp, which client (pump, dhcpcd, dhclient,...)

    Firewall (Bastille, Tiny, Smoothwall ..) , which type ipchains, iptables,...

    Window manger, application problem/question give the name
    (gnome, kde, sawmill, kscd, kmix, eroaster, ...) Different
    window managers can have different programs.

    Give us error messages if you have them.
    Look in your logs, /var/log/messages on Redhat and Mandrake.

    If it is a shell/script question, give the shell name (bash, tch, zch,...)

    Example: Using RH 7.3, kde, dhcpcd though a cable modem on RR in Fortworth Tx.
    ipchains Tinyfirewall is disabled. Still cannot get a lease.

    distro? (plz make it be either suse, redhat or mandrake)

    Depends on the distro you use.

    For example:

    RedHat 9.1 gives you an options to automatically partition your hard disk
    Slackware 9.1 gives you two fdisk programs for you to fine-tune your system.

    Go for mandrake 9.1 it's got a very good installation tool and a very good
    maintenance tool.
