My object is to install Spectra Linux to my brand-new computer. Operating system is Windows XP Home Edition and file system FAT32.  Hard disc is Maxtor 4R080L0 (80GB) with two partitions: C 74,34 gigas (cluster size 32 kb) and D about 2 gigas (for Linux). I will reserve for Linux 6 GBs in all.
I tried first of all to arrange more space for Linux by shrinking C with parted, but I got an error message:
The FATs aren't big enough to describe all clusters! Each FAT is 19032 sectors. There are 2436514 clusters, which would require each FAT to be 19036 sectors.
Print-command returned:
Minor           Start                End                Type                File system                Flags

5            76159.709            78159.990        logical                FAT                          lba
My shrinking command was  resize 1  0.031  72000.
I don't understand what the error message means. How can I proceed? Please, help me!
