Types of HD partitions needed for installing Linux
I used DOS FDISK to partition 2/3 of the drive as a primary DOS partition and the other 1/3 as an extended DOS partition and formated both of them (C & D). I also executed the DOS SYS command in both of them. Then second guessing myself I began to wonder if I should not have SYSed D:. Since the drive is virtually empty, now is the time to start over again if I need too. My plan is to use C: for DOS and Windows 3.1 applications and D: for Linux applications. The HD by the way is 1 gigabyte. I think the core of my question is, does it make any difference how the D: drive is partitioned?
