Whats the best way to post multiple questions of similar type?

On this forum, is it prefered to post multiple posts of singular questions with relevant titles, or can they all be bundled into a single post with a generic "lots of questions" type title?

Just wondering, as I have a few I'd like to post.

You'll probably get the best response if you post each question on it's own, in the most appropriate forum, and with a good title.

I would agree, I think some peple shy away from answering only 2 out of 5 questions although the next person that comes along may only be able to answer the other 3.

On the other hand there isn't much need for anyone to create 3 threads for:
How do I mount a fat 32 partition?
How do I mount a ext3 partition?
How do I mount a reiser partition?

Not that anyone would really flame them for it but I would rather answer them once with a generic - "This is how you mount something" than doing each in detail. In my experience people learn better by doing than being shown step by step by step by step by step. The fundamentals are more important than the specifics in most cases.
