Dear Dennis,

Sorry, didn't think of that. It's a desktop, Celeron 1.7M, two HDDs (40
GB and 80GB), monitor Samsung 45Bn. My disks are already partitioned and
I have Fedora Core 5 (which is my regular OS), Mandriva 2006 and Windows
98 (okay, okay, I know, but I do need it sometimes -- I have to earn a
living after all and need some Windows programmes), which I use only
very occasionally. I am quite proficient at installation, and have
installed many distros. over time to try them out. At Step 5 of
gnewsense installation, I always check the "Partition disks manually" --
either of the other options would create havoc on my already nicely
partitioned disks. That's the point from where the thing refuses to move

Thanks for the help.
