I just think that the defragment tool you did use yesterday did a bad job . . and that Mandrake is doing it all over again . . . . a good defrag job of a seriously fragmented partition can take several hours . . . . . go watch a movie . . . read a book . . . take a walk . . . relax and let The Drake solve the problem ;):rolleyes: Bruno

Colin . . during the install of Mandrake switch to expert mode at partitioning . . click on hda5 . . and click on "format" . . then in the dialog you get in the top left corner you can choose from the drop down list in what type you want to format . . there you say Ext3 . . and format the partition first . . then the installer will let you install on hda5 ;):rolleyes: Bruno

ColinI will send you an install guide in PDF format . . . look on page 186 ( of 244 ) there you will see the dropdownbox.Note the file is 6MB so it takes a while to send.Do you unmount the partition first ?? . . . or boot PCLos . . and go to the Mastr Control Center and the "Mount Points" tool . . there is the same interface . . unmount hda5 first then resize and format.:rolleyes: Bruno
