Or must it be ext3? I've never heard of that format before.
You can keep your ntfs in your windows partition, it will work.
Ext3 is a filesystem like ntfs or fat, though doesnt need defragging

remember kiddies: sudo rm -rf= BAD!, if someone tells you to do this, please ignore them unless YOU WANT YOUR SYSTEM WIPED
I just formatted it to fat32, which completed fine. I tried to format to ext3 but it says "The parameter is not valid." I was reading through previous threads here and everyone seemed to say that NTFS would not work. But if it does indeed, which one is better to run Ubuntu on, ntfs or fat32?
u format ur drives when ur installing
