which option do I choose on Fedora install screen?
Could someone tell me which option i choose in the install screen on fedora?
I don't know whether to choose the default options in which Linux is installed on available free space on the hard drive, or whether I have to choose the custom install.
I have windows xp running on my system already.
On the hard drive Windows uses 2 partitions. The first partition is a recovery partition and the second is the main Windows partition.
I used Gparted partition software to divide my hard drive into 2 further partitions - one 30Gig EXT3 for Linux operating system and one of 2Gig for swap files. Gparted tutorial videos actually suggested 1 partition for the OS, 1 for swap files, and one for saved data, but GPARTED would only allow 4 division on the hard drive in total. I take it that Linux will work with one main partition and a swap file region?
Anyhow, if i use the default install, will Linux avoid writing over my Windows install and install itself into the ext3 partition, rather than the swap file partition?
If i have to use a custom install, what do I have to do.
It would be great if some Linux pro could give me some advice.
