Dual boot of windows (ext3 formatting)
I am trying to install the latest version of Mint and having some problems. I already have Windows XP installed and I want to keep it, so I took a 22GB partition (ntfs) I had and tried to format it into a 20BG ext3 partition and a 2GB swap (I have 1GB RAM). Unfortunately, the ext3 did not and will not format properly so I currently have a swap and no ext3 file system. So, I was wondering if there was an easy way in bash (or somewhere else) to format the partition into ext3 if I can get it back to ntfs or just from "free space". Thanks very much for any help and I hope this isn't too hard.
