I am planning on installing version 9.04.
I'd like to put each of the following in separate partitions:
This would facilitate using more than 1 version of Ubuntu, even more than 1 Linux distro.
Windows will still be my main production system, but there are *ix tools, such as Bluefish, that I wish to use, and I wish to install XAMPP for Linux. I already have XAMPP Lite for Windows.
A bit over 2 years ago, I installed version 7.04 in a 32GB partition, with a 2G partition for the swap. Since I cannot easily upgrade 7.04, I have deleted it, and will install 9.04.
I definitely wish to separate /boot, /home, and /opt.
I've seen a recommendation of 20GB for each of /boot and /home, and 5GB for swap. Did not address /opt.
What are the recommended sizes for each of the 4 partitions?
