Hey all, Im completely new to linux and would like some advice on getting started here. I have windows XP and Ubuntu installed on a 250 Gig drive. I installed ubuntu (before partitioning the hard drive) and then partitioned it with gparted into a 40Gig Ntfs type, 10 Gig FAT32 type and the rest as ext2. Now my problem is that I dont know which partition Ubuntu is in. Is there any way for me to find out? GParted lists the ntfs partition as the /boot,/host. Also, when I tries to import my backup files from an external drive I get a message saying there is only 10 GIGs of space on my drive. Is Ubunto actually on the ntfs partition? How do I resolve this problem? How do I get Ubuntu to the ext2 partition and transfer my backed up files over?
I've finally gotten the courage to leave windows and am really interested in the philosophy of open source, but Im finally stuck and really really need some help. I would appreciate if someone could guide me through this step by step. I am a total newbie at this and am eternally grateful for any help,
