    10 GB XP - FAT32
    10 GB / EXT3
    10 GB ext3 for data and/or for trying other OS.
    15 GB FAT32 Data to be able able to read/write from XP and Linux. I do
    not want XP to read/write any ext3 partitions as it can damage them.
    13 GB /home EXT3
    2 GB SWAP. So that I do not run of memory easily on 512 MB RAM machine.

    This is on 60 GB HDD (Laptop).

    A bit different on 80 GB HDD on Desktop.

    A few

    /dev/sda - Linux hard drive - 80GB
    sda1 /boot
    sda2 /swap
    sda3 /
    sda4 /home

    /dev/sdb - Windows hard drive - 200GB
    sdb1 - equivalent of /
    sdb5 - Windows folder (equivalent of /boot)
    sdb6 - Storage (equivalent of /home)

    /dev/sdc - Music hard drive - 320GB
    sdc1 - music
    sdc2 - backup

    How's that?


    My laptop has one 160GB hard drive with four partitions
    1 for /boot
    1 for Slackware's /
    1 for Sabayon's /
    1 for /home

    Re: How many partitions do you use?

    Due to being careless when installing I have 6 partitions

    1 - Dell Utility - Forgot to delete
    2 - Vista Partition - Probably Will Delete
    3 - 6 Mb of free space (Have no idea why- but too lazy to fix)
    4 - /
    5 - /home
    6 - /swap

    Traditionally I've usually just left Ubuntu to do a default install, so that would mean a root partition and a swap partition. And then I've added an extra drive to my file-server which is where I keep all my stuff.

    Recently however, I've started putting the /home on a separate partition.

    200GB for XP

    Ubuntu 7.04
    10GB for ext3 /
    1GB for swap
    39GB for ext3 /home

    basically the same has the ubuntu screencasts!, which are awesome, too bad ubuntu (or linux in general) has trouble with ntfs, hopefully this is fix on future releases,

    cant wait for 7.10 release next month!
