I currently have Win 2K, Suse 9.1, and RH 9 on my system, however I want to put all my linux distros into one HDD. I currently have 2 HDDs - 120 GB for Win 2K and my data files in mulitple partitions, then I have a 60 GB HDD that has one partition as a backup location for files and 3 other partitions for suse, rh, and swap.
this is what I was thinking of doing:
hda - keep as is with ntfs system
hdb - split as follows or similar:
hdb1 - ntfs (backup for files)
hdb2 - /root (suse) 100 mb ----------------------
hdb3 - /root (rh) 100 mb |
hdb4 - /root (ubuntu) 100 mb these could potentially change
hdb5 - /root (slackware) 100 mb |
hdb6 - /root (any other distro) 100 md --------
hdb7 - /home about 6-10 gb
hdb8 - /var about 5 gb
hdb9 - /tmp about 1 gb
hdb10 - /usr about 6-10 gb
hdb11 - swap
would something like this work or would I have to have each distro installed on it's own 2-5 GB partition while sharing access to /home, /var, /tmp, /usr, and swap?
Hopefully this makes sense.
Also I am considering having a boot disk for each or all of the distro's together.
