... I've eaten my Wheaties, but I'm still confused. My partitions look like this:
(Total Space approx 80 gigs)
Primary (Windows) - 30 gigs
Primary Extended: 1 Gig
Logical Linux (Root) - 5 Gigs
Linux Swap - 500mb
Logical Linux (Home) - 25 Gigs.
Extra - a couple of gigs in case I needed it for something else...
When I read the install doc, I got the impression that the Extended wouldn't really be alloted any space because it would be the total of all the logical partitions. But when I ran fdisk I had to allot it something. I tried alloting 30 gigs, but then I didn't have anything left to allot to the logical partitions. Since I couldn't allot nothing, I went with a gig because I thought it would be safe. Everything installed fine and I got VL up and running. However, I'm not afraid of reinstalling if it will improve my machine.
Would a different partition setup be better?
