Okay, I'm still researching for my Mandrake install, and i've got some questions. I have some partition questions after reading http://linux.oreillynet.com/pub/a/linux/2001/10/11/filesystem.html
. I also have some questions about installing different programs.
1. Is it recommended to have separate partitions for different directories such as /, /var, /usr etc?
2. during the install, will I be asked where I would like to place each filesystem? If not, how do I place the directories onto different partitions?
3. when I go to install Mandrake, does it automatically install different types of desktops, browsers, etc? If so, can I uninstall them to keep my system simplier?
