Question Partitioning


Hello

I had some problems with windows7 so i formatted my harddisk and installed ubuntu... piece of cake... Now i want to install knoppix as well.

I need to know how i have to partition the disk for another (knoppix) distro next to ubuntu and others.. I'll hope there is some handy software but a instruction will be enough .. i think cause there is some support in knoppix.. but these instructions are not enougt to me... Please help me out...

Regards DM

Knoppix isn't really meant to be installed, it is a live CD. You can install it, but there are many many distributions better suited for the task.

As for repartitioning, the safest way is to boot into a live environment and use Parted/GParted. Unfortunately, my understanding is that Knoppix no-longer includes Parted, so you would need to use another disc like System Rescue CD.

Windows 7 has a way to edit partitions. Might use it. See help and support, search for disk management.

I would also suggest that you consider virtual machines if your system is new enough.
