I'm getting rid of Win7 for good because as far as I see it 8 is worse than any they've ever made, and besides which, I can't afford to buy a new laptop to handle it. Anyways, I'm much more comfortable now with Ubuntu and am planning on wiping the drive to redo my partitioning, since i didn't know what I was doing before. I hope this is the right place for me to ask this. I want to triple boot, Xubuntu, Backtrack, and FreeBSD.
Here's what I want to allocate so far and I'm not really sure how much I will allocate for FreeBSD, but my current plan will leave about 100GBs on my 250 GB drive:
/ 2.5GB / 2.5GB
/usr 40GB /usr 15GB
/var 4GB /var 5GB
/tmp 10GB /tmp 5GB
/home 40GB /home 20GB
swap 4GB swap is shared with the other one
Anyways, I intend to use Xubuntu for normal everyday use and then play around with BackTrack and begin learning about security auditing. I also want to put in FreeBSD to learn UNIX . I intend this only for my own personal use, and I got these sizes from the recommendations from the ubuntu online manual (if that's what it was... =/)
I hope someone can give me yes or no on whether this sounds good as soon as possible, because it's 7pm here and I hope to have at least Xubuntu installed sometime before 10pm tonight. Also, I wonder if creating a partition for /boot so that the boot manager can be changed as necessary when I install the other two operating systems. Also, I intend to install Xubuntu first, then BackTrack, and then FreeBSD. Does that sound like an alright order to go in?
Thank you guys so much for all the help you can provide me with!!!
