Appreciate the help.

Okay, found out through some reading that it should be an Ex2 or Ext3, so I repartitioned it for Ext3. It does not have a drive letter, however, only an asterisk.

Is this normal?

How will Linux know to install into this partition?

Sorry, I realize these all must be basic questions, but this is my first time partitioning a drive AND using a Linux product.
