Separate partions for /usr, /home,/root, and /swap
I'm new to slackware and linux in general just finished installing slackware 9.0 from cd. I'm having some issues with it so I'm going to uninstall and set it up again, but I want to put the home, usr and root directories on their own partitions. What I'm unclear about is do I put these directories in their own partitions during the installation or move them after the install is done? Maybe this isn't a good idea, but I think I should at least have my home directory on it's own partition so I don't have to keep reinstalling stuff I work with. I have an 8 gig hd on the machine I'm working with here so what would be the best use of the space for the different partitions too? With 256 megs ram.
