I just bought/built a new system and now I want to install Mandrake 9.1 on it.
My questions are about the partitions. For now, I have 2x40gig partitions (on the same drive). The fist is NTFS and holds Winblows xp. The second is FAT32 and is for data. I have 2 questions:
1)Is it save to resize a NTFS to install mandrake or should I install it on the FAT32 partition.
2) I'm considering making my linux partitions about 10 or 15 gig totally (should be enough?). I know that I have to do multiple partitions(swap, / , /home , others?). How many partitions should I make and what size should they have? Finally I would like to be able to use my data (FAT32) partition with linux and windows.
If you need more info, just ask for it.
Edit: Just want to ask what file system should I use. Hope this won't become a flame war
