    I mean just pick the side-by-side install option and let the installer worry about the partitions.

    If your data is valuable to you, back it up.

    As long as you understand the partitioning scheme you can do all the things in your post.

    Re: HowTo: Partitioning Basics

    thank you for this great & helpful guide,
    i want your updated opinion on ext4 when all(most) distros are now using it as default . secondly what will be the best scheme if i'm going to use my system as only single os (ubuntu or any derivative)?
    core i3, 4gb ram, OCZ agility 3 ssd ,ati radeon -- ubuntu 13.04
    acer aspire 4752 -, ubuntu 12.10


    Faith is miraculous if it is accompanied by dedicated efforts
