I am installing debian and have a problem of understanding (ie, I have read all the docs, plus some HOW TO):
what don't I understand ?? I am partitioning my PC and I am using cfdisk
for this, I want to create 8 partitions
swap,/,/var,/var/mail,/usr,/usr/local,/home and /tmp, I understand that I
am limited to 4 primary partitions but I can create logical partitions, so
I have done a primary partition for swap,/,/home and the rest are logical
partitions, fine! Now, carrying on the steps of the boot-floppy, I am asked
to initialise the partitions and to assign their role (swap,/,/usr...) and
here is the problem: I can only choose the 3 primary partitions I have done
and only THE FIRST logical partition to which I have to choose between /usr
or /var or other to put in; How do I then create all the other partitions ??
Please don't just reply with one or two words because I have tried a lot of things and I really need someone to take of its time to explain and guide me.
