    I have previously installed FC2 by giving 80% of my
    hard drive to Linux. Then, I would like to format the
    remaining part of the hard drive (i.e. the remaining
    20 %) with fat32 system to install a windowsXP.

    Indeed, the windows XP that was "given" with my laptop
    refuses to be installed on the remaining part of my
    hard drive (cf. the remaining 20 %). It says that
    there are to many partitions !!!

    And Microsoft refuses (of course !!!!!) to give any
    advice despite I was obliged to buy a winXP license !

    That is why I think a solution would bet to previously
    format the remaining 20 % of my hard drive from the
    linux system with the fat32 system before trying to
    instal windowsXP.

    Thank for your advice !
