Partitioning scheme for 2 booting...


Hi

So, I have this brand new 1TB hdd which i plan to install in my lappy, as soon as SL 6 pops out...

I want to install SL6 x86_64 for work, and <<Back|track 4 for "fun" ... LULLZZ ...

anyway, considering this, i am planning to allocate 50 Gb for SL6, 10 Gb for Bt, 1 Gb for swap and the rest for /home,

I think there's no need to have some separate /boot partition, is it..?

BRGDS

Alex

don't know what SL6 means , anyways , with using ext3 or ext4 or a supported filessystem it shouldnt need to have separate /boot

/boot is for when using like unsupported fs like LVM2

oooo ... yea... how can they be clones if RHEL is a distro that you have to pay for.. isn't it closed source or what.

Nop...

One does not pay for the appz... or the code... one pays for the support... RHEL has support while CENTOS/SL does not, but RHEL is OSS also...
