Hello. I am quite new to Linux. I’ve tried Ubuntu and Mandriva as Live CD’s, then i popped in OpenSuse and i immediately loved the interface. So i decided i’ll keep going with Opensuse.
I want to install this thing, but i need a little bit help. I actually did a few partitioning before, with NTFS. I know that i need some of my hard drive to be partitioned to Linux. I’ve looked at the partitioning section of the installer, and i kinda got baffled.
To make your thing easier, if there is a pictured tutorial kinda thing somewhere about partitioning in Opensuse installer, please link me there. If there’s no such thing, just help me out please.
I have 2 hard drives, one has two partitions, and the other one is obsolete. All of the partitions have important data in them. So i can’t format any. But they all have free space.
- So how many Linux partitions do i need ?
- How big should they be ?
- If i want to retrieve these partitions back to ntfs later, can i do that ? Can i do that inside Opensuse ?
