Linux 6.0 on 20 GB harddisk?

By saravanan_2_11_1976 ·
I'm using Seagate 20 GB hard disk.

Drives OS SizeGB) FAT Partition

C: Win 98 2 FAT16 Primary
WinNT 4 2 FAT16 Logical
E: 4 FAT32 Logical
F: 10 FAT32 Primary
G: 2 FAT16 Primary

I want to install red hat Linux 6.0 hedwig(kernel 2.2.5-15) on the "G partition".

I want to know whether "red hat Linux 6.0 hedwig(kernel 2.2.5-15)" supports more than 2GB or not.

If it is, how can I make Linux Partitions on my G drive?
Please help me to solve this problem.

There's something in the RedHat install notes about using a boot floppy if you're going to install on a large HDD. However, the even easier way to go about this is to get 7.2, which will give you better support for the large HDD. Also, I wouldn't use a FAT16 partition. Let Linux use its native ext2 file system. It will work smoother that way. Boot from the CD, and it should let you either run fdisk, or use some graphical interface or another to repartition the drive.
