    Hi, I'm quite new to this forum and would appreciate any help. When i try to partition my hard drive via PCLinuxOS, the roller bar which lets you choose the size of of the drive can only go to a maximum of 76000mb and a minimum of 41000mb. But the problem is that i only had 12gb of hard disk space free. What is going on? thanks before hand

    Are you sure? Usually the partitioner doesn't let you choose more space than is available... :confused:

    Anyway, you could partition your hard disk with GParted ( http://www.howtoforge.com/partitioning_with_gparted ) before you install PCLinuxOS, and then you tell PCLinuxOS to use the existing partitions. :)
