/boot/efi and Suse Linux Enterprise 11
I am trying to install Suse Linux Enterprise edition 11 SP2 on a server which has UEFI bios ( quite a latest server).
So when i boot this server with SUSE linux Media,installer creates a partition /boot/efi by default ( type shows as vfat).
I never saw a VFAT partition on linux ( normally raiserfs or ext2 or ext3 for /boot), but this seems different and installer does not allow me to go for any other partition type other than vfat.
When i selected expert partitioning option ( as i have to create some LVM partitions as well ) , there is no vfat option available for /boot/efi so i had to go for FAT.
1. What is the difference between VFAT and FAT?
2. Does FAT a good choice for linux oS like Suse Enterprise ... why they went for FAT for elilo?
3. Is the selection of FAT OK for /boot/efi? I am concerned but does not have any option to go for VFAT ( by the way what is linux partition type number for VFAT)?
Thanks in advance for help
