Question Basic Question Regarding the Partitions


This is a very basic question regarding the way the system should be set up after completing the steps in Section Part 2 (Preparing a New Partition). After following these steps as I interpreted them, I have three partitions:

1. My host partition, where I have DSL installed.
2. My swap partition.
3. A partition with an ext3 file system.

In the next section (Packages and Patches), I will be downloading the listed packages onto partition one(1), where I have DSL installed. And placing them in the $LFS directory.

Is all of this correct?

Thanks ahead of time!

Sounds about right. Remember, you need to mount your number 3 partition somewhere, e.g., /home.
