I'm installing ubuntu for a friend, and i'm going to partition his drive. But my brother did my install so i'm not sure what to put for the settings.

Options are:
Type for the partitioin: Primary or logical (which one?)

Location: beginning or end

Mount point: which selection?

Create 3 partitions.

(Assuming you have more then 40gb of storage)
1st partition - 10-15 gb:


Format: ext3
Mount Point: /

2nd partition - 512mb - 2 gb (depending on how much ram you have, if you have 512mb of ram make this 512mb if you have 2gb ram make this 2gb)


Format: linux-swap

3rd partition - <the rest of the drive>.gb


Format: ext3
Mount point: /home

In the install then it comes to partition, do a manual partition. Make one round 10Gb and mount it as / then the next one as swap round 1Gb. If you want a home partition then make that one to what size you want. The / and home (if you have one) partition is ext3, the swap is swap. The first one it at the beginning. This may help.
