Hey all.

Currently i'am trying to move away from Windows 7 and 100% to Ubuntu, with wine for the programs i cannot live without.

And i'am wondering the following.

When partitioning the disks, can you partition a fast usb drive to be the system /boot partition, and a slower 7200rpm HDD as the / (root) and /home partitions.

Then boot from the usb and mount / and /home locations?

Currently i have partitioned my system as such (single HDD)
/boot 200MB
/ 60GB
/home 258GB

If this is not a good way of partitioning ones HDD, what would be a better way?

Kind regards.
