I am new to Linux. I use RedHat Enterprise WS, currently version 4.0. I use Partition Magic a Windows program to manage all of my partitions. It has a feature that I would like to be able to use. It can browse all partitions. I create the Linux partitions as Ext 3. The Partition Magic documentation warns against the use of Disk Druid on the Linux side.
The GUI install for RedHat has two options for partitions. One is to install in unused space. The second is to use Disk Druid. I select the partitions in Disk Druid edit and set the label to /var and / and /boot to create a mount point. The labels on the partitions of /var, /boot and etc. are put there by Partition Magic.
This is enough to make the partitions unreadable and unusable with Partition Magic. Is there an install option to use existing partitions for the install without having to go into Disk Druid?
