I don't see the benefit of creating a separate /boot partition. The root partition should be at least 5 GB if you are going to have a lot of software installed, but you wouldn't use 9 GB. Probably 7GB is plenty for root. ext4 filesystem is fine to use for both root and home.
Hmm...didn't see your and lancek's post, I had to partion it with the amount of space as mentioned above. I couldn't wait to get the PCLinux up and runnig coz I already formatted the C drive where Windows was installed. No other os was there except the Ubuntu 9.04 live cd !!
Anyway, the install went well and man, the pclinux's kde desktop is stunning. Very cool !
Better than Windows 7 !!!!!!
But I'm having trouble in tethering my phone . The Ubuntu 9.04, even from the live cd, can tether my phone, funny !!
I tried umtsmon and it says can't start ppp though it detects my phone correctly and displays operator info etc.
And the network manager say can't access(forgot the actual message) the /dev /ttyACM0 !!
