I have Ubuntu 8.04 installed and working on a 320Gb SATA disk. I want to dual-boot Kubuntu 7.04. Hardy Heron is taking up about 30Gb and I want to install Feisty Fawn on the same size partition.
I have installed an extended partition for Feisty Fawn to go into.
When I load the live-CD of Kubuntu and try to install it, I choose "Manual" partition, since "Guided" only gives me the choice of "entire disk" or "largest unused space", and I want to limit the size of the Kubuntu installation.
When I manually set up the partition for Kubuntu I tell it that the mount point is "/", but shows me that the corresponding partitions for Ubuntu are to be mounted at "media/sda2" and "media/sda3"; these are the "boot" and "home" partitions for Ubuntu. Is that what I want?
If I change the mount point for sda2 and sda3 to '/' and "/home" respectively, it fusses about there being TWO partitions that have "/" as a mount point. As far as I can tell, it know nothing about dual-booting.
So I end up abandoning the install.
Some help, please. Thanks.
