Hi Karel, thanks, and yes I have done that. Before putting in the Suse disc, I'd set up the partitions for Suse using a partitioning tool from Acronis that works under Windows and does a very good job. Then I tried the Suse disc, intending to tell the installer to use the partitions I'd already set up. But the installer doesn't seem to see any partitions - it acts as if the disc is blank! So puzzled, I put in a Knoppix 4.0 live CD to see what it makes of the disc. It sees all the partitions (except the Linux swap partition which isn't formatted) and will happily mount them. So I remain puzzled. It's a SATA disc and I have no experience of setting up with SATA. Does anyone know if it's different?
