partitioning for triple-boot
I have Windows XP Pro and Fedora Core 3 going. am looking to add Suse 9.1. I have a 60G drive.
For just Fedora+XP, I used Partition Magic to create a 50M /boot in front of the ~38G NTFS partition for XP. Then I put a 1G /swap partition after the NTFS, and about 20G / partition last.
Then I took off some of the NTFS (the last 15G) and made it 'Unpartitioned'. When I went into Suse install and try to specify that space, it tells me it cannot create a mountpoint in the Extended partition because there's no free space in the extended partition.
I'm guessing I need to partition that 'Unpartitioned' as ext3? if I do that, and have Suse NOT install a boot loader, will I be able to just edit the /etc/grub.conf in Fedora to have an option for Suse?
What is the best kind of partitioning scheme for a system that will have multiple Linux OSes and Windows XP...I'd like to be able to run Fedora, Suse, Debian, and Windows XP.
thanks for any input.
