Installing without partitioning

OK I have done this and found it easy and fast

First i got a software called partition Magic 5.0
With the help of it i made linux partition and linux swap partition.
It automatically converts them to their formates.

NOw when i will install linux 7.0 i won't have to do all that partitioning stuff which is very confusing and difficult for newbies

Just do it the easy way

If there is any problem in that way ,plz let me know

Good tip.

Actually, it'd be easier for all Linux & BSD to install if there's an empty space left for the fdisk to find and auto-configure. For BSD, you MUST have empty space or else you won't either use up the entire HD or not be able to install at all.
