Im new to Ubuntu and can't understand the whole /dev/sda stuffs ntfs limitation etc.
So i kinda need a little help here.
I have a 1005ha eepc notebook. it has 4 partition on it.
sda1 ntfs 77.4gb
sda2 ntfs 77.4gb
sda3 fat32 5.2gb
Now my question is, how do i install properly ubuntu w/o killing the f9 recovery mode of eeepc. Cuz incase i want to revert back to windows i can just hit F9 at start up.
I want to use the 1st partition as my ubuntu OS then second partition as my extra storage. But i dont know how to set it properly.
Should i first change the SDA2 from ntfs to ext3 or 4? or fat 32 file system?
then click install now to sda1 ntfsto install the linux and delete the windows xp?
What is the Swap part in the partition? do i need it?
if i convert the sda2 to ext3 will it still be just the same as fat32? just copy paste stuff there?
Sorry for the noob questions. hehe
