Hey guys,

I'm trying to install SuSE 9.3 on my Acer notebook. I get to the Installation setup screen and the installation saids I don't have a proposal for Partitioning on my hard disk and I can't go on. I'm trying to install a Linux with Wi Fi abilities and thought 9.3 could do it, so now I'm downloading SuSE 10.0 evaluation lol. Can anyone help? Thanks.

thats the strangest thing i have heard. What part of your hardisk does it try to install then? and does it try to over write your windows partitions ?

How big is your HDD? It should prompt you to say how you want the drive partitioned. You might want to download the checksums for the disks and check for any errors.

hmm i successfully installed SuSE 10.0.....now i can't get my Wi Fi to work. I have an Acer Aspire 3000 notebook and the Wi Fi adapter has a "turn on" button. With SuSE 10, it won't turn on so i can't get Wi Fi connection. Is there some software i can remedy this problem or do I have to go buy a Linksys? Thanks.

@the_wanderer

This is a driver issue, you might have to use "ndiswrapper" to get the drivers going. try searching that in google and you will come up with a lot of stuff. if u are a newbie and really dont have the patience/skill/time/knowledge to do it.. i sugegst trying http://www.linuxant.org they have the drivers ready to go, albeit it costs some money

cheers
