Problem while installing linux8 in 80gb?

By nitingautam ·
I am facing a problem when i try to install a Linux 8.0 on 80gb hard disk.
I have four OS installed already.
Win 2003 Server
Win 2000 Adv Server
Win 2000 Professional
Win 98

I have 3gb partition for linux.
But when i try to install the linux on partition section it displays error
"BIOS gemeotery problem but this is not the case here LBA recomended"
but after changing harddisk mode to LBA the it display the same message above.

2)But other win2000pro & svr go slow & showing Windows file explorer after long time, My Computer if trying to open goes HANG.
at startup it shows drive f: is non window partition

Is there any tool to hide linux partition to win2k so that it don't go slow.

Please solve my problem.

Did you create the partition for Linux under Windows? If so, in Windows, remove/delete the partition, and recreate it during the Linux install. By default, that partition (and the swapfile partition you need to create) will be invisible to Windows.

Also, what distribution of Linux are you using? I don't think there's "Linux 8.0" unless you are referring to RedHat 8.0 or SuSe 8.0 or something similar.
