formating a partition (sda5 - NTFS filesystem) to make it "linuxable" (fedora 8)
hi guys and girls...
i have a fedora8 installed, and a parition which was used by a w2k os.
i moved all the data (moustly music and videos) from the sda5 partition, 'couse some linux user tould me i shoul not try to save something on a ntfs filesystem from linux, 'couse this could cause damage.
i read some other threads and they speak of the mkfs comand. i took a look at the manual, but din't understood very well, and im afraid of making a mistake here.
any help? and how important is to have an ext2 or ext3 filesystem if i wanna save music and video?... i mean, whats the diference anyway?
tkx a lot
