Main Screen

When you first start the manual partition mode you will see the screen on the following page.

This main screen will show you a list of created partitions, drives with space available, and space remaining. It will also allow you to add, delete and edit partitions.

There are two listboxes on this screen, the partition listbox and the hard drive listbox. Both boxes scroll and can be accessed by hitting the tab key on the keyboard. Hitting Enter while in the partition listbox will bring up an edit screen, described later in this section. To scroll up and down in a listbox simply use the arrow keys on the keyboard.

The first thing that must be done at this menu is to add a /boot partition. A /boot partition is required for compatibility and security and will be created for you automatically the first time you hit the Add button.

The /boot partition will be a 30MB partition created on the first drive in the system. If you have both SCSI and IDE drives in the system, the following window will appear so that you may select if you want this /boot partition on the first IDE disk or on the first SCSI disk.

After clicking the Add button the main screen will refresh and you will see the newly added partition. If you had to choose between SCSI and IDE this will happen after your decision.
