Angry Mint-Fluxbox installer does not ask for creating partitions !


Installing Mint came up to the stage where it gave final warnings that the selected portion of harddisk will be formatted and blah..blah.. There was an Advanced options button. I clicked that only to see the boot loader install option.

From where should I create seperate partitions for /home and /root ???

Just a general suggestion (as I'm not familiar with Mint) - if you're in a tinkering mood, try creating your partitions in advance, using something like Gparted. Perhaps the installer will spit out some new options upon seeing multiple partitions.

Thanks for replying, I have already started that process, see this thread : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-linux-834875/

But isn't it *dumb*, that Mint itself doesn't ask for creating partitions. I have also put this question in the official Mint forums, they too have not replied yet !
