Hi! I have a brand new Dell Vostro 1400 which I want to dual boot (existing XP Home and Ubuntu 8.04). My questions are
1. When I look at the existing partions (using QParted on Knoppix CD), I see an extended partition of 2.5GB (0.7GB used), fat32 format, labelled "DelMD3play". Anyone know what that might be, and if I can safely kill it?
2. Is there any disadvantage to putting linux on the extended (04) partition, rather than on the main partitions (01 - 03)?
