Partition Magic Help.


I'm getting ready to partition my second HD, preparing for FC4.

Can someone help me through this? How much space do i need to give it?(the drive is 120GB...with 37 or so used.)

What file system type do i need to give it?

Anything else i should know?

The Symantec support site has a section on partitioning for linux: http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT...rc=bar_sch_nam

Or search the Symantec support site for “partitionmagic linux” at: http://www.symantec.com/search

Also, there is a good partitioning HowTo here: http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/doc...Partition.html

Or you can use the autopartitioning function that is available on one of the PM menus.

You can use Partition Magic if you want, but Fedora also has a partitioning tool included as part of the installation process.
