Partitioning a dual-boot and large drive (not what you think...)
Two questions, both basically the same.
1) I have linux by itself on a 40 GB drive that will have a partition for backing up files from my Windows machine. This system will eventually become a router/server. How should I partition this drive. (ie sizes for /, /home, etc.) and should I use a FAT filesystem for the big partition that will hold the files?
2) I also will have Linux dual-booted with WinME on a laptop with a 15GB drive. Me will be the default boot and most of my drive should be dedicated to Windows. I want enough space for Linux to learn the operating system and use the prompt to write Perl scripts. I plan on C: being ~3.5GB, then about 4GB for linux, the rest being D: for windows. Advice on correct layout of the linux partitions in this case would be helpful.
Thanks in advance,
