    Question Install - What Should I choose?

    ok, I'm installing HardY OS.. As it went thru partition I choose Manual, because I have a RAW HD waiting for Hardy to be installed.. So, It gives me an option..

    Note: I have Windows Vista on my other Hard Drive

    Create Partition

    Type for the new partition: Logical or Primary

    What should I choose? What's the difference between Logical and Primary?



    Location for the new partition: Beginning or End
    What should I choose?



    Use as:
    Ext3 Journaling file System
    Ext2 file system
    swap area
    FAT 16 file system
    FAT 32 file system
    ReiserFS Journaling file System
    JFS Journaling file System
    XFS Journaling file System
    EFI boot Partition

    What should I choose?



    Mount Point:
    /
    /boot
    /home
    /tmp
    /usr
    /var
    /svr
    /opt
    /usr/local


    What should I choose?


    Also, I've seen a classmate of mine just hit a key and he switch his operating system, can someone tell me how does one do that?



    Thank you for your assistance!

    Hi & welcome to the forums,

    Quick answer

    1) select auto install - just make sure you point it to your empty hard disk.
    When asked for swap, quick rule -- 1GB or what ever your RAM is (whichever is GREATER)

    2) Sounds like he's either
    a) running Wubi in windows
    b) running windows in ubuntu virtual machine

    Phill.

    As to 2), sounds like a virtual machine. I agree with phillw.

    Thanks ... Phillw, I don't see an option as Auto-Install.

    I'm a complete newbie..
