Ext 3 I have no idea why I call it Linux 3 format...I could make up some lame excuse, but bottom line is, I don't know why I do that.
However, I just realized, You're trying to install SuSE, which Uses Reiser3. I had a similar problem once. What I had done wrong was after partitioning, I left a large chunk as unused space. Once I formatted and partitioned it, everything was fine.
Depending on what you are trying to accomp[lish, You should use ReiserFS3. If you plan on using space as a storage area for a dual boot with windows, FAT32 would be easiest.
Did you pre-format?
What's on it now?
What o ou plan to put on it?
Have you designated a swap file?
Is it making it to the part where it asks how you would like to format?
Did you clean the MBR?
Way back (SuSE9.1) was testy with me. It wouldn't do anything right unless I preformatted. I have no idea why, and this isn't a common problem with many users. It could be anything really.
