Hi all.
I'm now ready to install redhat 7.3 on my pc, but I've got a couple
partitioning questions. I've gotten my hands on a copy of partition magic
to adjust my hd's partitions. I want to install linux separate from my
windows partition, and I've already isolated windows in its own separate
partition. Looking over some of the redhat docs, it seems I should make 2
partitions for redhat, 1 for the root and 1 for the swap. Is this correct,
and what would good sizes be for these partitions?
Thanks a bunch.
