First things first, Thank you for reading this post, and any help given.
OK the problem. I have already installed Suse 9.1 pro onto a 2nd hard drive a WD 120Gb XP home is on a 60Gb hard drive. So in Yast it lookslike this.
dev/hda 57.2gb hds.............
dev/hda1 57.2gb HPFS/NTFS
dev/hdb 111.7gb WD120...........
dev/hdb1 996.1Mb Linux Swap
dev/hdb2 110.8GB Linux Native
So in the 120Gb (hdb) I would like to make a 60 gig partition. I guess that my question is, 'Do I need to worry about were the partition block starts, like you do in Win'?
Oh and one more side question 'Is there anything that I should think about before i do this and is there any forseeable troubles on the way'?
Sorry one more thing if someone could explain how hdb and hdb2 can be 111.7GB and 110.8Gb respectively on a 120Gb drive, it would be great. Just for the learning curve. cheers
