Let’s say I have 60 Gb for Suse 11.0 and I want to make root, swap and home partitions before I run the installer (and do the formatting: swap would be “swap” format, root and home would be ext3).
I have windows on the same drive in a (of course) primary partition. The 60 Gb for suse is currently unallocated.
I have read that I could make a 60 Gb extended partition and then, within this, make 3 logical partitions of root, swap, and home.
Is this correct or at least one option that will work? Or, do one or more of these 3 linux partitions “have to be” “primary”?
FYI, the only reason for doing it this way is that this is only the 2nd full linux install that I have done and prefer to “see” the partitioning graphically (using Disk Director Suite) rather than go into the “expert” mode during the installation.
