<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>what am i doing wrong here? </FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>i went ahead with the install anyway just to get it 
going, im hoping i can either expand the parts later with parted or something or 
hopefully the extra space is just sitting there some where unpartitioned and i 
just cant see it.&nbsp; im sure the drive is good&nbsp;it was working in another 
system, non-linux.</FONT></DIV>
