    Cool Ubuntu Installation on 120G hardisk

    I just installed Ubuntu on a 120G hardisk with any partition. Is it already to install Ubuntu on large hardisk without partition the disk? Would it causes any problem on the Ubuntu later?

    You can use gparted live cd to shrink the partition at a later time if you want to add other partitions.

    download gparted live and burn it to a cd. Then boot up the cd. It will guide you through expanding, shrinking, creating, moving partitions. It has a very easy to use menu.

    Thank you very to you guys. It works very smooth and hassle free. Even non computer geek like me can partition the hardisk after installing ubuntu. I have divided my hardisk into three partitions.I didn't know there is such program available.

    Thanks again you guys.

    It will not cause to Ubuntu any problems. But you should use three partitions for Ubuntu just to make things easier for you later. Use.

    one for /
    one for /home
    one for /swap

    Having a separate /home makes it easier to install new versions of OS or other distro, as you dont have to format it. You can keep the existing /home and just add it to the new system.
