Hi, i just did a clean install of fedora 5 on my sata drive, I also have a ide drive, but I only delete the previous partition and didn't format anything on it. Now that I got fedora 5 working, I want to know how can i format the ide drive to actually use the free space it has? any help is greatly appreciated.

The only thing that doesn't work is ati fglrx drivers, i don't know what's wrong, but after i remove the previous kernel, ati fglrx drivers didn't work, when i open it this is the error i get: "Fire GL Control river does not provide the Fire GL extension! Panel components will operate only partially."

current kernel is : 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5smp

this was installed:

Installing:
kmod-fglrx i686 8.27.10-3.2.6.17_1.2174_FC5 livna 187 k
Installing for dependencies:
xorg-x11-drv-fglrx i386 8.27.10-3.lvn5 livna 8.9 M

with fglrxinfo, it gave me this
display: :0.0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa project: http://www.mesa3d.org
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
OpenGL version string: 1.2 (1.5 Mesa 6.4.2)

but my video card is ati 9800 pro, not mesa glx
I remove the drivers and reinstall twice and i still get this error, what is wrong and how i fix it. Can someone please help on this one?

try gpart or qtparted if you want something graphical. you can install them through yum.

it depends on the filesystem that you created on it.
