Transferring my Debian to new hard drive and merging partitions
I have a quick question about changing to a new hard drive.
I have two partitions, "/" and "/opt" on my old hard drive.
I want to use my new hard drive for debian but I want to be able to choose partition
(say I want one big partition for the whole hdd for example).
Can I also choose between other filesystems?
i.e. if reiserfs is better for my files then ext3.
(if you have a good idea on partitioning my 160 gigs feel free to tell me, i have 1 gig RAM so I might need a swap partition)
Last, but not least, I want to have a 10 gig windows partition on my old hard drive where linux is now,
but I'm not sure how to configure lilo since windows will erase MBR
I'm not sure how to set up my PC to read my new partition's MBR first.
Here is a quick summary:
1) Partition my new 160 gig hdd
2)copy linux from old 80 gig to new 160 gig HDD
3)Install windows on my 80 gig one
4) make them both bootable
Thanx very much folks
