Thumbs up Linux Partitioning with Backtrack


Hi,

'Manual disk partitioning using Backtrack' is a good guide for newbies & old timers with memory issues.

'Guide to disks and disk partitions in Linux' is a internal link for getting some helpful information & guide for newbies.

HTH!

Not another backtrack post!!

I can't decide between these two replies.


My mind would really be bad if I needed a guide on how to partition.

I have a hot chick next door. Can I use backtrack to access her webcam?

Not everyone knows how to partition. The linked guides are helpful and useful. You are not forced to read any thread here at LQ nor are you required to respond.

I do use 'gparted' LiveCD and yes it would be a good choice. BT5 is another choice for users that provides other utilities to the community.

Look at the links, some are intrigued but do not know or understand how to set things up properly. BT5 developers are noticing the problem and are providing a means to solve issues. Users can get some useful information and understanding from the links.
