I tried to install Ubuntu today, but it fell over when I got to the
Partitioning section. I got the two Options: 'Erase the Entire Disk' or
'Manually Edit the Partition Table'. I chose the latter because I have many
other partitions on this box.
When I did that it claimed that there was only one partition; a 40Gb FAT 16.
In reality the first partion is a 15Mb FAT 16 (to fool Partition Magic into
booting from the CD). After that I have four ext3 partions of 10GBs or so
apiece and a swap partition. It couldn't see any of the Linux partitions.
