Question What is the best disklabel for a Linux-only system?



Hi,

I'm using both Fedora and Windows on my notebook and I want to remove Windows and completely switch to Linux. My hard drive is 120 GB SATA one.

The current disklabel is set to msdos, as Windows is installed. My question is, what is the best disklabel for a Linux-only system? Features that I expect are security and efficiency.

Thanks.

Unhappy Sorry

Sorry about wasting your time bringing an already discussed topic. I found a similar thread here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...onment-527561/

I use an intel processor and so I should remain on msdos.
