Ok so i didn't get any response here http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=440995
Maybe u guys are busy, no problemo (although i wont lie i felt a bit sad)
Ok now on my 2nd 80gb SATA, ive installed FC5. The partitioning details are as follows
/dev/sdb1 ext3 / Primary 10.00GB
/dev/sdb2 none W95 Ext'd Extended 66.33GB
/dev/sdb5 none swap Logical 256MB
/dev/sdb6 ext3 /home Logical 10.00GB
/dev/sdb7 ext3 /usr Logical 10.00GB
Unpartitioned Space -- -- -- 46.08GB
Now i want to add Ubuntu6_beta2 to this drive. My plans are as follows
/dev/sdb8 ext3 / Logical 10.00GB
/dev/sdb9 none swap Logical 256MB
/dev/sdb10 ext3 /home Logical 10.00GB
/dev/sdb11 ext3 /usr Logical 10.00GB
The remaining size i want to leave unallocated for some other linux.
These partitions are planned in the hope that ubuntu will allow them. Strangely enough, in beta_1 it never allowed me to add /home and /usr. Whenever i tried to do it, it automatically considered both as fat32 and would fail.
Now generally ubuntu will write grub to MBR and list the other OS's.This ubuntu is temporarily now as the final release will be made in June and thats my target.
1) How do i remove ubuntu later without affecting my system?
2) Now since i'll create the above directly in ubuntu (using gparted), will it conflict with FC5 or will FC5 initialize these partitions when it boots (i don't ever want to see the 'kernel panic' screen)?
3) Say i remove ubuntu by formatting its partitions either in Windows or FC5, what about grub? If i do a 'fdisk /mbr' in windows, then it'll directly boot without FC5. How do i retain FC5?
IF i had it my way i would have never touched Windows, but my bro needs it for his mechanical work(Catia,Pro-E etc).But im sure i'll never ditch Fedora for anything
Can somebody suggest on this?? Or probably point me to some links.
A BIG THANKS
