I've been installing Angstrom on my C3100 all day today, and finally got Cacko to dual boot with Angstrom, following these instructions:
http://www.linuxtogo.org/gowiki/AngstromAndCacko

The above instructions worked fine, but my problem is with the instructions below, in the part where you repartition the HDD.
When in a console in Cacko, my partitions add up to only 140M, 46M, and 1022M (That's roughly 1.2GB)
I get the same results as above in a console in Angstrom also.
Where did the other 2.8GB go??

CODE
As root in a console do the following:

# fdisk /dev/hda

Command (m for help): o (Blow away the partition table)

Command (m for help): n (New partition)
Partition type: p (Primary partition [1-4])
Partition number (1-4): 1 (Root partition)
First cylinder (1-7936, default 1): 1 (Start of disk)
Last cylinder or size: +150M (150 Mbyte, adjust as desired)

Command (m for help): n (New partition)
Partition type: p (Primary partition [1-4])
Partition number (1-4): 2 (Home partition)
First cylinder (293-7936, default 293): [hit enter] (Just after hda1)
Last cylinder or size: +40M (40 Mbyte, adjust as desired)

Command (m for help): n (New partition)
Partition type: p (Primary partition [1-4])
Partition number (1-4): 3 (Root partition)
First cylinder (372-7936, default 372): [hit enter] (Just after hda2)
Last cylinder or size: [hit enter] (Rest of disk)
Command (m for help): w (Write to disk)

I think the directions may have changed. My impression is that / is the first partition, and either /home or swap is the second, with the third being the other one.

You could try doing an "fdisk -l /dev/hda" to see exactly what's going on.
