i have installed my ubuntu in the a slave harddisk --250gb, (master is 80gb --windows xp running on it) but the thing is it is as a SINGLE PARTITION, when tried to resize/move thro Gparted in live cd i got errors, so i installed it on the complete disk without partitioning and after installation i tried again but this time some other error occured and the process terminated, please help.

Thanks in advance,
