"No Free Primary" with Linux 6.1



Hi,

I am installing Linux 6.1 on my Dell Laptop.

Once I get to the partition table, two partitions are already used by
NT.

Device        Type
hda1            OS/2 HPFS
hda5            OS/2 HPFS

This means that if I want to set 3 more partitions for my Linux : /boot
/root /swap.
I will need to use extended partitions.

The question is how do I use fdisk to add an extended partition when I
am in the basic install phase, <cntr><alt>[f2] does not help ??.

Thanks.

Elisheva
