partition questions, continued
OK, I bought a new hard drive (maxtor 240 g I think) and made a 10gig partitions for windows 98. That is installed and done.
Now, using knoppix booted from cd, I am in Qtparted, and I have this:
01 /dev/hdb1 fat32 (active) 9.32GB
02 /dev/hdb-1 free (hidden) 224.44 gb
I have 512mb of memory -
my question is what do I make from here? The rest of the space will be used by linux, so do I make a swap partition (and is this primary or active) and let my fedora dvd do the rest? What is the best way to proceed? I was thinking of using a large portion of this drive a data storage area that could access my mp3 collection from either os, that would be protected if I decided to switch to a new distro without having to worry about backing it all up, as I have about 100 gigs of music currently.
Thanks to all who have helped so far! This site has been really great!
