July 29th, 2008, 10:26 AM
Im new to linux... just got into it about a week ago, as my dad, whom i was visiting, had these interesting videos involving computer software/ hacking/etc. (one of which a cbt nuggets course on linux).

..but anyways...
i was wondering if this partitioning "setup" looked ok
WinXp 43gb Ntfs(my first os Junk+non-linux games = hdd hog)
/ 10gb ext3
/home 5gb ext3
swap 2gb swap(my laptops ram is 756mB)

Looks alright, although your swap should be formatted as swap and not ext3.
