Hello,

This is a good starting point in my opinion: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Partition/.
And good basic information can be found here: http://www.linuxsa.org.au/tips/disk-partitioning.html
and http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/Partition.html

Kind regards,

Eric

You're welcome. Of course any questions that remain unanswered can be posted here at LQ, I'm sure someone will be able to give additional info if needed.

Kind regards,

Eric
